rules of engagement on Waxing UnLyricalTo wax unlyrical

This blog is where I and my guest bloggers sound off, mellow out and generally articulate thoughts we can no longer keep inside my head. It does not reflect the opinions of clients, former or current employers, or anyone else.

Well, perhaps sometimes those of my dog, Suzy Q… no, seriously, it’s just me. And my guest bloggers, both frequent and infrequent.

Comment policy

My blog = my sandbox. To play here, please be nice. Polite argument and respectful agreements to disagree are fine. Abusiveness is not.

I don’t moderate comments, but if I find you’re spam-bombing WUL, or picking a fight for the sake of it (or maybe to increase your Klout score, heaven help you), you’ll be blocked and/or your comment(s) will be deleted. And if I find you’re clogging the conversational comment stream with a ton of irrelevant links, I reserve the right to remove them.

And you take responsibility for your comments and agree to stand behind them – just as this is my blog, those are your comments, not mine.

Terms of use and necessary legal disclaimer 

All content provided on this blog is for informational purposes only. The owner of this blog makes no representations as to the accuracy or completeness of any information on this site, or information found by following any link on this site.

The owner will not be liable for any errors or omissions in this information nor for the availability of this information. The owner will not be liable for any losses, injuries, or damages from the display or use of this information. The owner is not responsible for the republishing of the content found on this blog on other Web sites or media without permission.

Disclosures, etc.

Waxing UnLyrical is not a pay-to-play blog. My bloggers and I are transparent at all times, and as I said earlier, what we publish here is our own opinion… and you can’t buy that.

If we ever mention clients, employers, etc., we make it clear in our posts. If we review products and/or services, we disclose any payment, compensation or freebies that have exchanged hands. Just like the FTC likes.

Credits, etc.

My team and I make every effort to ensure we give credit where credit is due, by using the appropriate image license, for example, following “link love” best practices, and so on. If you think we haven’t, it’s probably an honest mistake, so please let me know.

And we’d appreciate it if you did the same; i.e., please don’t scrape content from Waxing UnLyrical (it’s unethical). If you’d like to republish a post, or a section thereof, please let me know.

Updates and changes

This policy is subject to change at any time.

That’s it

Easy, huh? Now let’s play. I really am glad to see you here.
