Comment Policy

This site provides the opportunity for visitors to communicate in the public domain through visitor-submitted, published comments. The nature inherent in online dialog raises significant questions in the areas of privacy, responsibility, and ownership of data related to these published conversations.

I believe you deserve to know your rights and responsibilities as a commenter on this site. You also deserve to know my rights, responsibilities, and intentions as site owner with regard to the comment-related data you freely provide. Consequently, this Comment Policy governs your responsibilities and discloses my intent with your comment data.

If you are unsure what something means, please ask. Contact information is available at the bottom of the Comment Policy.

Audience

This site is intended for teenagers or older. The minimum required age for participation on this site is 13 years old. Nonetheless, parental discretion is advised. There are topics on this site that some parents may feel are inappropriate for their children.

Conduct

Commenters have the right to be presented with age-appropriate dialog and treated with both common courtesy and respect. If you believe this right has been violated, please notify the site owner. Conversely, commenters are expected to interact with age-appropriate dialog and to treat others with common courtesy and respect.

Moderation

I reserve the right to edit, delete, suspend, or publish comment data solely at my discretion. The most certain ways to get comments banned are to get into arguments about, or using, the Bible, or to put down other commenters or me.

Privacy

This is a public website on the internet, therefore anything you share on this site in your comments is public information.

When you subscribe to this blog (to get email updates), I will never share or sell your name or email address, or any other identifying information.

Anonymity

Though my identity is out there for all to see, and I prefer that kind of openness, because of the nature of the material on this site, I do allow anonymous comments. They are, of course, held to the same standards of civility as all other comments. “Brand Names” (such as commenting in the name of your blog, for example) and online personas (e.g., “smiler08”) are also permitted.

Usage

Comment data may be used for any purpose.

License to Publish

Commenter grants 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

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