Comments Policy:

Comments are the intellectual property (IP) of and sole responsibility of their authors. They may be shared across the social web and blogosphere, and visible in public web searches, including by third party systems currently, formerly, or in the future, in use. This can include Disqus, LiveFyre, Intense Debate, WordPress.com, or other web-wide commenting and discovery platforms. All comments are subject to moderation, editing, rejection, or in extreme cases, banning, reporting, or other actions at our exclusive discretion. Be honest, frank, open, thoughtful, but please also be respectful and kind 🙂

Privacy:

This site uses cookies. Cookies are just data.  Despite what the uninformed mainstream media sometimes reports, they are not “programs”. Almost all websites use cookies for technical reasons – to know if you are logged in as you move from page to page, or enter a comment. To keep track of technical details about your browser to speed the right technical version of our content to you, matching what your system can best display. The third party advertisers, widget providers (weather, location, currency, social networking, or similar) also use cookies, and those features may appear broken if you block cookies. Please see your system’s help information and also consider the privacy protection add-ons we list below, if you do not want to have cookies from us or our partners/vendors/service providers stored on your system.

This site may include interactive media presented via Microsoft Silverlight or Adobe Flash. Those products, and the required add-ons that must be in your browser (and probably are already), may store what they sometimes call “Flash cookies” or “persistent objects”. Read your software documentation for the settings on how to turn off storage of local Flash /Silverlight “persistent data objects”. Certain versions of our recommended privacy add-ons can block or delete “Flash cookies” – specifically Ghostery for Firefox. Possibly others.

As do all other websites, our web server at our outside hosting company captures your IP address, general geographic location of that IP address, referrer site information (where you are coming from), and significant information about what browser and device you are using. Including plug-ins and other add-on software, your device’s operating system, screen size, and more. This may be sufficient to do “browser profiling” to the point of uniquely identifying you even if you are using adblocking and tracker-blocking software. We do not engage in browser profiling, but cannot speak with absolute certainty as to our third-party providers. This site is hosted at one of our trusted hosting partners: normally DreamHost, in the USA, but may also be hosted at times at Gandi, either in USA or in France, or with whatever company and geolocation the site owner chooses. However this site is technically distributed in part via one of more systems known as a Content Distribution Network (CDN): Currently we work with the CloudFlare CDN, the WordPress.com CDN for images, the Google Code Repository CDN for certain JavaScript and other code libraries, which may include fonts, and the Google PageSpeed Services Distribution Network. All of the above are primarily located in the USA, but your particular device may be getting the site from what the CDN in question determines is the closest, fastest, or other wise best location to serve you, out of their global coverage of multiple servers. Thus your browsing and using this site may involve you sending your requests and getting your responses through one or more of those companies. What those companies do as to privacy is up to their policies, and by using this site or the internet at large, you are responsible for understanding these normal functions. Please look up and visit the homepages and privacy policy pages of Google, WordPress, CloudFront, StatCounter, Shareaholic, Google Analytics, Microsoft Bing Webmaster Tools, and others, for more information.

This site is partially supported by advertising and/or affiliate commission sales programs. Advertising content served may be served by Google, Amazon, Qadaba, Microsoft, Yahoo, and other external providers; their privacy policies apply to said content, including setting cookies and web beacons. 3rd-party and on-site analytics from Google, Statcounter, Shareaholic, WordPress, and others may be in use.

Controlling What You Share – Protecting Your Privacy:

We recommend Ghostery for Firefox, Firefox Mobile, Chrome, and Internet Explorer, or Disconnect for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari, if you do not want to be tracked. We recommend AdBlock (NOT Adblock Plus, which takes money from advertisers to allow adverts past their blocking) for Chrome, and Adblock Edge for Firefox, again, never Adblock Plus. You do help us pay our web hosting bills by allowing through ads. Adblockers can help both to prevent you from seeing ads, and as a basic form of blocking web trackers, if you don’t want to use Ghostery / Disconnnect.

Some functions of our site will not work if you block all third-party trackers and widgets, including comment reading and posting. Please unblock Disqus if you wish to participate in our comments and community features. Please unblock Shareaholic if you want to use our easy tools for sharing to your social networks, to email, and more. If you value our content and wish to help us by making your purchases of the books we sell on the site or other products at Amazon.com through our links, please unblock Amazon Associates. If you wish to help us, via allowing us a small commission, at no cost to you and no change to your pricing, to other products, web hosting services, VPN services, and similar, please also unblock Extole, Shareasale, Commission Junction, Linkshare, and Rakuten Linkshare, in Ghostery and/or Disconnect. If you use AdBlock / Adblock Plus / Adblock Edge, if you also us an adblocking add-on Privacy list like “Easy Privacy”, please whitelist those features for our site, or at your discretion of course, whitelist our site entirely. Thank you.
