No comment again on no comment commenting

Once again, despite my long interest in inflaming racial tensions I am advised by lawyers not to comment on this comment story and this piece by Keith Windschuttle. Once again, I must also forbid your usual  racist, bigoted and inflammatory comments here, too. If you think these restrictions absurd and illiberal, I may not comment on that comment, either.

Nor may I comment on comments on Windschuttle’s comment about the refusal of the Fairfax media to buy into this beatup, or even comment on any risk Windshuttle comments risk in commenting on a matter of little public interest.
