Comment Policy

COMMENTS are what make this a real community!

But because this website offers the opportunity to communicate through comments published in a public forum, this raises important questions regarding ownership, related data, privacy, and responsibility. This comment policy exists to clarify all rights and responsibilities (both yours and mine) related to these online conversations.

Comments includes: making a comment on a post or page, sending a message through my contact form, and participating in a poll.


I love hearing your thoughts, but please help me keep this a courteous, respectful place for all!  We can agree to disagree respectfully and with courtesy. Rude, inflammatory, offensive, contentious, or profane comments will NOT get published.

Who can participate?

The minimum age to participate on this site is 13 years old. I am committed to protecting minors, as per the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

Comment Data and Privacy

Data required: You are required to provide your name, email address (and optionally your website URL) when submitting comments. This data is used for the sole purpose of allowing participation in visible, public discussion on this website.

NOTE: You can optionally sign in using Twitter or Facebook. Clicking in the “Enter Comment” box at the bottom of a post opens these options for your selection.

Anonymity: You may comment anonymously, but I’d rather meet the real you! Brand Names and online personas are also permitted.

Privacy: I never publish or share emails or other personal data. The only info published is your name, website, and whatever input you make.

Keep Comments on Topic

Comments are meant to create a conversation around the post. So please keep comments relevant to the post topic. You can use my Contact Page for other input or questions.

Comment Moderation

I reserve the right to publish, delete, cut, correct, move, or suspend comments at my sole discretion.

Licence to publish comments

By submitting a comment you grant this site owner a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and non-exclusive license to use comment data in any form of published work or performance including, but not limited to, web sites, digital eBooks, print, audio, video, live and broadcast events.

Legal indemnity regarding comments

Commenters agree to “hold harmless” the site owner and authors from any and all legal repercussions, damages, and liabilities perceived to have been caused by participating in this site’s online conversations.
