Comments Policy

Comments Policy

I am very generous in the types of comments I will allow. I reserve the right to delete comments that are inappropriate, offensive, or obvious comment spam. Comments, in the context of this policy, include pingbacks and trackbacks.

If you want to use keywords in the name field for comments, you should use the YourName@YourKeywords format in place of just your name. Comments that contain keywords only may be deleted. Even if properly formatted, they may be deleted if they appear to be comment spam.

Do not link to commercial gambling or pornographic websites. I will delete comments that link to them as soon as I discover them. If your website URLS points to adult images of any kind, please label your comments with some kind of warning. If I follow that comment to the source and it offends me, the comment will be deleted.

Do not link to spam blogs (splogs). They are easily identifiable and comments that link to them will be deleted regardless of any other rules.

This blog is written for adults. While I have no problem with comments from younger people, I will delete obvious childish comments.

One or more filters are in place to prevent comment spam. If a comment containing spam slips through, it will be deleted as soon as I discover it.

I do not moderate comments except as I stated above. I will eventually view all comments and I will delete comments as necessary.

You retain ownership of your comments. You grant me the limited right to publish them on this blog (as the current comment or in an article) or any blog that I specifically own. You can request removal of comments contained within the comments area (or used within articles) if you do not agree with the usage. Comments will never be used out of context and will not be used as testimonials for products or services without express permission.

I reserve the right to contact you via email regarding any comment you make.
