Site Policies

I felt it was necessary to lay out a few guidelines for this site. Please follow them. As this is my site, I will determine what entries violate them and do whatever I see fit to handle them.

Posting Comments

Be nice to your fellow posters. Don’t flame them. No name calling or general disrespect. Don’t insult people.

Random, inappropriate or unhelpful comments may be removed. Disagreeing is generally fine. It all depends on what you are saying. If it’s not inflammatory to me, chances are that it’ll be alright.

No vulgarities. Even what some would consider low level vulgarities will not be permitted here.

I am under no obligation to leave comments online. I respond to and delete comments at my own discretion. This isn’t a debate forum. There are plenty of forums on the Internet where you can debate any number of issues, but this is not the place to get completely immersed in an argument.

One good rule to go by is if you couldn’t say what you are saying in front of your mother, it might be worth revising.

No advertising. That’s vague, yeah. Suffice to say, blatant and unsolicited advertising isn’t cool.

Don’t worry, be happy. Have fun and treat people with respect.

My Posts

I will make various corrections to my posts without notice. These include spelling, styling and so on. If I have to correct myself, change an opinion or admit a mistake, I will make notice to that fact in the post or in a new post.

Thank you for visiting.
