• Comment moderation: Comments on this blog are moderated. I reserve the right to edit or remove any post or element of a post for any reason. That said, I do try to be as hands off as possible.
  • No keywords in author names: Either a real name or a handle is okay, but if I think you are using an author name simply to target keywords, I may edit or delete your name, website link, or comment.
  • External linking: Relevant links are encouraged, but comments and links intended mainly for site promotion risk being edited or deleted.
  • Detente: If I suspect your posts of being spammy or mainly self-promoting I might remove your links. If you keep posting and stay on topic I am likely to reconsider and allow the links.
  • Civility: This site supports free speech, but it also values civility. Abusive or offensive comments may be edited or removed.
  • Range of opinion: Comments reflect the viewpoints of those commenting and do not necessarily express my opinions or the views of the website.
  • E-mail: I answer most nonspam e-mail, often promptly but sometimes more slowly. Occasionally I might e-mail someone who leaves a comment.
  • Privacy: I do not share user information.
