Because talking is hard enough
without all those 'st's

Hey Margo, my comment just got published now and it supports you! The 'article' was crap.
Go, Nez! Thanks for that. I was getting a bit paranoid there. :)
Was about to alert you to the fact that there was a very articulate post criticising the so called journalist, but Nez beat me to it. But I seem to have missed the activity on Twitter. Am I not following you?
I tweeted about this. My comment (firmly disagreeing with the "article", but absolutely polite and not at all in breach of any of the Herald Sun's dubious posting guidelines) has not been displayed. This has happened to me several times before on the Herald Sun's site.That sort of sneaky censorship and subsequent misrepresentation of reader response is just so...tacky.However, it does now appear that at least a couple of erudite rebuttals have slipped through the cracks. Bravo!
Yep. Didn't publish mine either. Why even bother having comments if you're just going to sycophantically pick and choose? at least the Daily Mail published them all.

I write fiction. My latest novel is Sea Hearts, published by Allen & Unwin in Australia—this novel is published as The Brides of Rollrock Island by David Fickling Books and Jonathan Cape in the UK, and by Knopf in the US, and as Seeherzen from Rowohlt in Germany. I've also written Tender Morsels and five short story collections: White Time, Black Juice, Red Spikes, Yellowcake and Cracklescape.
