Our objective is to increase the quality of information by identifying issues as well as options for their solution.
We welcome input which points out oversights and shortcomings in information and facts or in our analyses. This can be in the form of a short article or comments.
On the other hand, those who do send in replies should pay some attention to the clarity of their argument and presentation so that we might publish the content. APE internal regulations prevent us from editing or censoring any content.
Be aware that anything posted is subject to replies from our correspondents or readership so nothing can stand as a final declaration on any topic. However, we maintain the right to bring to closure exchanges that are no longer advancing understanding of the topics under discussion.
We will request clarifications and author modifications when a piece or sections lack clarity or the tie up between facts, argument and conclusions is not transparent (logic). We will also request reduction in the length of each submission depending on content. For example focussed concise pieces get messages across better than longer multiple factor pieces that can be difficult to follow.
Sender details are not posted since "replies" should stand up on the basis of the logic contained therein.
If there are likely defamation or libel issues in content sent to us we will treat the communication in confidence and return it to the sender requesting items of evidence to support their statements as well as advising that they take legal advice before requesting publication.
Readers can send in comments and feedback on any article. When comments and feedback are received this is indicated by the button on the left which provides a link to that content.
Any articles would be lined from the home page as in the case of all other articles.
When sending an email please indicate clearly the subject matter to ensure it receives appropriate routing.
