A brief message from the Heritage Action team:

We should like to draw attention to our submission guidance for articles & comments (see link at the top of the page). In view of some comments posted to the Journal recently, it is appropriate to clarify that the Journal is not a democracy. It is part of a conservation website set up to promote and facilitate our own conservation agenda to the very best of our ability, not a facility provided to enable public debate upon whether conservation is important – so postings that advocate any other approaches to heritage or otherwise (in our judgement) conflict with or adversely impact upon our aims are never welcome. Consequently we reserve the right to exercise editorial control over all comments (although we do so as sparingly as possible). In addition, spurious comments from posters using multiple aliases or email addresses in an attempt to obfuscate their true intentions or views are never acceptable.

Please bear the above in mind as we will take it from now on that any comments received signify that the conditions have been understood and accepted by their authors and we will not be entering into any discussions on any editorial actions we may judge necessary.

Many thanks.
