Comments are designed for conversation. If your comments do not add to the conversation or aren’t relevant, they will most likely be deleted. Further:
I reserve the right to delete comments that are inappropriate, offensive, or obvious comment spam. Names containing keywords only will probably be deleted during moderation. If they are kept, the names will likely be changed to “John Doe” or “Jane Doe”. If multiple names are used for the same website URL or IP address, they may also be deleted during moderation.
Do not link to drug, gambling or pornographic websites. I will delete comments that link to them as soon as I discover them. If I follow a comment to the source and it offends me, the comment will be deleted.
This website is written for adults. While I have no problem with comments from younger people, I will delete comments that appear to come from children.
You retain ownership of your comments. You grant me the limited right to publish them on this website (as the current comment or in an article) or any website 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.
