DrillOrDrop always welcomes comments. One aim of the site is to foster constructive debate about fracking and the onshore oil and gas industry.
The writers value highly the expertise and commitment of everyone who comments.
However, there is a risk that the useful content of the comment pages is becoming lost among off-topic discussion or personal remarks.
To address this, from today, I will remove or edit new comments that do not contribute to the debate on that stream.
It is difficult to create a forum that balances robust discussion with safe, legal and useful content. I apologise in advance if you think your post has been removed unfairly.

The way comments are displayed has also changed. On pages with a large number of comments, older threads will no longer appear at the top of the comment list. They will still be accessible from the “Older comments” link at the bottom of the page.
