Terms of Service

This is my blog, website and domain even if I choose to display the information on it publicly.

In other words I get to decide what information will appear on the site.

By using the site you agree to the following conditions.

This site is not intended for children under the age of 13.

Visitors of the site are allowed to post comments on the blog, but currently all comments are moderated.
Comments will appear on the site only after they have been approved by the site administrator and they can be removed even after an initial approval for cause or without a cause at the sole discretion of the site administrator.

Anything that you post on the website, comments or other material if your account allows it, once approved will become part of the website. By posting it on this site you implicitly give permission to current and future owners of the site to display your material publicly as long as they see fit.

Comments can be posted with or without first registering on the site.

Any information you enter, such as your e-mail address, name, website address, and any other data you care to share can and possibly will be kept in the blog’s data base indefinitely.
If you choose to leave a comment without registration you can leave the name and e-mail fields or both blank.
Please do not provide false information such as an invalid e-mail address, or an e-mail address that does not belong to you.
You can enter a pseudonym into the name field if you like.

It is against this site’s policy to impersonate someone else when posting a comment or registering on this site.

User registration also requires approval by the site administrator.
If you choose to register it will be easier for you to leave comments in the future and engage in more meaningful discussions with other users of the site.
When your registration is approved the login password will be sent to the e-mail address provided, so registration does require a working e-mail address.

By using the website you agree not to post any content that

  • Is deliberately or excessively offensive. While it is nearly impossible to have a public debate without someone taking offence, the primary purpose of your content should not be to try get people mad at you. Please try to keep your discussions civil.
  • Uses foul language.
  • Threatens with, incites, advocates or promotes violence.
  • Incites, advocates or promotes hatred.
  • Violates someone else’s privacy.
  • Violates or attacks someone else’s dignity.
  • Is pornographic in nature.
  • Infringes on someone else’s copyright, trademark, any other intellectual property rights.
    In general posting any material that you do not have the rights to is not allowed.
  • Is harmful or destructive, such as computer viruses, worms, spyware or other malware.
  • Is spam designed to direct traffic to other locations on the Internet. Advertisements or other unsolicited promotional matter.
  • Is intentionally misleading or deliberately contains information that you know to be untrue.

Content that is inappropriate for the topic under discussion will be refused even if it would otherwise be acceptable in general.

The primary language of this site is English (I sure need to remember that).
Short quotes in other languages are allowed if they contribute to the discussion, but preferably they should be accompanied by an English translation.

Discussions /comments in languages other than English are discouraged because the expectation is that most visitors of this site would not understand them.
