Items under the Comment menu tab are mostly links to other online outputs, such as online newspapers.  But they also include our Forums or bulletin boards where you can post stuff directly, book, film and televison reviews, video/TV news using a state-of-the-art video search engine, digests of the latest relevant newspaper stories, and a list of blogs linked to digests of their content.

To post on one of our forums, register and login, go to the Forums sub-menu, pick the relevant forum or bulletin board and just enter your comments directly by clicking on New Topic within the relevant discussion category or forum. You can create your own new forum, but let me know what you want to do first so that we can organize it the most effective way. To publish reviews, contact me here.

Don't forget to paste in any relevant weblinks to your comment! It is a good way for you to comment on news stories. We will keep the posts, so these forums will become an archive. It gives you the power to save publically what you see as important news, along with your comments on it. 

Your comments will hopefully connect with broader debates within communities, or even across the globe, about news and information on crime, deviance and justice. They could also connect with research and theory within criminology.
