I have never heard of the verbal-prepositional construction "to allow through" which is presumably a coining analogous to "to let through" and I would, as an editor, ask for that to be rephrased to be clearer and less inelegant now that I finally see what the sense of it is meant to be. I think consistency is good but hard to achieve with so many contributors. I don't browbeat, I defend from unfair criticism and the kind of arbitrary authoritarianism which insists that certain constructions "have got to be stopped." If I am defensive of MusicWeb, it is because such petty quibbles are aiming at the trees rather than enjoying the beauty of the wood.
