Comment policy

The Saint welcomes and encourages discussion on this website. We hope that the comment sections on our articles will be places for readers to interact and debate in a sensible and mature way.


The Saint does not moderate comments on articles, but we reserve the right to respond to complaints about defamatory or discriminatory content. If such a complaint is made we will respond in an appropriate fashion, potentially by removing the comment, as soon as possible.

In addition, The Saint makes use of an automated spam filter. If you post a comment that subsequently fails to appear, it was likely caught by the filter. We are not responsible if your comment is caught in this way, but you may email the web editor at the above address to alert them to the situation.
