If you think anything on this site breaks any law (including the laws of defamation or privacy), contact me here: or call me at 04 463 6336. I’m likely to take it down while I consider the matter more carefully. 

If it can be shown that I’ve made a mistake, I’ll correct it promptly and prominently. By “mistake” I mean anything non-trivial that is misleading. If you think I’ve screwed up, email me at (If I don’t agree that I’ve made a mistake, I may still post a note referring to the point of contention).

If you think I’ve been unfair on you, I’ll give you a right of reply. Again, email me. If I can’t resist the temptation to reply to your reply, I’ll give you a reply to that as well, until one of us gets sick of it. Or you could just choose to post a comment.

I reserve the right to edit or delete any comments. I need to retain this right to comply with the laws of contempt, defamation, privacy etc. A media lawyer breaching media law would be a bad look. I will make it clear where there are edits.
