Terms of Service
Keep It Civil (aka Don’t Be A Jerk)
You’ve probably already noticed our strong anti-censorship stance and generally thick skin. We are not easily offended; the following guidelines are primarily for the benefit of you and your fellow visitors.
Articles published here may contain explicit content. Naturally, comments on those articles may as well. Profanity and other explicit content is perfectly acceptable in the comments, and will not be censored so long as it is legal and does not violate the following:
Personal attacks, harassment, and threats will not be tolerated. Sexist, racist, and broad, offensive generalizations about groups of people are not allowed. Comments or discussions written intentionally to provoke, insult, antagonize, or inflame may be removed at any time without notice, and repeat offenders will be banned.
If linking to your site or another site adds legitimate value to the conversation, then it is perfectly acceptable to post a link. However, a comment that contains nothing but a link to a blog, a product, or an article on another site will almost always be removed. Spamming will not be tolerated.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In compliance with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive actions, should a data breach occur:
- We will notify the users via email within two business days.
- We will notify the users via in-site notification within two business days.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
