comments policy

This policy describes the way we manage and moderate comments made by users on this website.

By using this website, you accept this policy in full. If you disagree with it, or any part of it, you must not use this website.


We encourage comments. Feel free to disagree provided it is constructive without being offensive.

We moderate comments from new commenters before publishing. Your first comment may take some time to be approved.

If comments are rude, obnoxious, offensive, or otherwise in violation of what we consider generally acceptable, they will be deleted.

Comments that don’t contribute to the conversation, are spam, promotional in nature, or intended for back-link purposes will be deleted.

Use a real name, not a business name, blog name, or nickname when commenting. Failure to do so will likely cause a comment to be marked as spam and then deleted

Do not put a personal website address in the comment text unless it directly contributes to the comment or the conversation. Ignoring this requirement will cause your comment to be marked as spam and deleted.

We reserve the right to edit or remove any links included in a comment at our discretion. If we consider a link to be inappropriate, spam, or otherwise offensive, it will be removed.

Any egregious violation of the above will cause the author to be blacklisted.

The following applies to all comments posted on the website.

all rights reserved

We reserve the right to edit or delete any comment. We also reserve the right to block access to anyone or group from commenting or accessing the website.


Valid email addresses are required for commenting but are not published on the website. We do not disclose, sell, trade, or rent any personal identification information to others. We may use the email address to contact the commenter.

Comments containing email addresses, physical mail addresses, phone numbers, or any personal identification information will likely be edited or deleted to protect the privacy of the affected party.

Comments that we consider to be rude or offensive will be deleted and the commenter banned from future use. No personal attacks are permitted in the website’s comments. Failure to respect fellow participants on the website will result in the comment being removed, the author being black-listed and blocked from accessing the website.


An unrelated, off-topic, or irrelevant comment or question will likely be unanswered. If you want to suggest a topic for a future post, please contact us.

If we receive notice that a comment contains proprietary, copyrighted or plagiarised content, that comment will be deleted and the commenter may be blocked from further commenting.

Comments containing links are automatically held for moderation. Links that contribute to the conversation and are relevant to the topic will be allowed, but links that are blatantly self-promotional without genuinely contributing to the conversation will be marked as spam and the comment will be deleted.


Comments that we deem to be spam will be deleted and marked as such. Commenters who repeatedly post spam will be black-listed.
