Terms and Conditions for posting comments
Please be respectful. This is the equivalent of attending a social gathering at someone's house. Our house, our rules.
Follow Wheaton's Law, and you should be fine.
Comments that are abusive or contain excessive profanity will be removed. Comments that contain illegal material or material that infringes on the copyrights of others will be removed. Yep, this is a moving target in the courts. We prefer to err on the side of caution.
Comments on some posts are screened. If we have to turn screening on, we'll note it on the comments form.
We collect your IP address when you send a comment. This will only be used for two purposes: In the event that we have to file an abuse report with your ISP or law enforcement (we hope we never have to do this), and for troubleshooting. In other words if you follow the rules, we don't care about your IP address. If you spam or if you are continually rude and/or abusive and leave foul language, an abuse report will be filed. We may also use your IP address for tracking down technical problems, but for this purpose we do not disclose it to third parties.
Beyond IP addresses, we do not collect any other information than what you give us. Your name and URL will be posted when your comment is posted. We will cooperate with law enforcement agencies when necessary, and this means we may have to turn your information over in the course of an investigation. Not that we ever expect this to happen, but we're just trying to cover our bases.
Submitting a comment constitutes permission to post. If you want to give private feedback, please use the feedback address below.
Spamming is NOT tolerated, nor is commercial advertising. You may list a site as a reference and you may link to your web site using the URL field. If in doubt, ask. Use the Webmaster link at the bottom of the page.
