Comment & Product Review Policy

We encourage your comments and product reviews on this site and hope you will join the discussions. We review comments before they're posted, and those that are off-topic or clearly promoting a commercial product won't make the cut. We also expect a basic level of civility; this is a family-friendly site, disagreements are fine, but mutual respect is a must, and profanity or abusive language are out-of-bounds.

By posting on our site, you agree to the following:

  1. You may comment without registering.
  2. You may not post anonymously. The comment form must be filled in with a proper or legitimate sounding name and email address. Comments using keywords, spam or splog-like URLs or email addresses, or suspicious information in the comment form will be edited or deleted.
  3. Email Privacy. Email addresses are required for commenting. They are not published on the site nor shared. The site owner may use them to privately contact the commenter.
  4. Commenter Privacy and Protection. All email, snail mail, phone numbers, and any private and personal information posted in any comment or product review will be deleted as soon as possible to protect the privacy of the commenter. To prevent such editing, never share this private information within a comment or product review.
  5. Language and Manners. This site is “family friendly” and comments that include offensive or inappropriate language, or considered by the site owner and administrator to be rude and offensive, will be edited or deleted. Play nice!
  6. HTML Tags Not Allowed. This site is setup to automatically remove HTML tags from comments and product reviews.
  7. A Comment is Conversation. A comment that does not add to the conversation, runs off on an inappropriate tangent, or kills the conversation may be edited, moved, or deleted.
  8. You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone and others are likely thinking similarly. Post your question as a comment rather than emailing us. It is a better use of our time to address everyone at once rather than answer several similar emails.
  9. You may disagree with us. We welcome debate. However, we ask that if you disagree with us—or anyone else for that matter, please do so in a way that is respectful.
  10. How The Site Owner Will Respond. Comments on this site will only be responded to in direct response to the blog comment. The site owner may or may not respond privately via email or other communication method to a comment or product review.
