Review Policy, Privacy Policy, Site Disclaimer & Comment Policy

So having recently been asked about my review policy and chatting with some other bloggers about some of the legality of blogging, I’ve decided to provide some info on my review policy, privacy policy and general disclaimer about the site:

Review Policy

If you’re a creator or a publicist and you want me to review something, I’m happy to read/watch your work. However, just because I’ve read something does not mean that I’ll post a review of it. Generally, I try to post reviews of works where I can say something positive about them or where my observations may add (at least a little bit) to the discussion of speculative fiction in general. Since I haven’t (yet) read your work, I can’t know a priori whether I’ll have something worthwhile to say about it. If you’d like me to take a look at something, just e-mail me on the Contact Me page.

Privacy Policy

Privacy matters. I value mine and I value your as well. I do not use any personally-identifiable information you choose to provide me for any reason. There are two ways to leave personally-identifiable information on this blog:

  1. If you subscribe to this blog, then my blogging software may require your e-mail address. I will not do anything with this e-mail address other than use it to deliver updates to you about blog posts or comments. I will never provide any third party with your e-mail address, unless required to by law. If you are uncomfortable leaving your e-mail address but still want to subscribe to this blog, then I would strongly recommend making use of the blog’s RSS feed.
  2. If you choose to comment, and include your (real) name and contact information in your comment, that is your call. The e-mail address you provide is always kept private (it is used to verify that you are not – in fact – a spammer). I will never share that e-mail address with any third party, unless required to by law. Any other information – including your name, web page, etc. – is entirely up to you whether you want to include it or not. If you choose to include it, be aware that it will be displayed in the comments. If you’re uncomfortable with that, then don’t include that information (use a pen name or post anonymously).

Site Disclaimer

While I try to be a nice guy, this is my blog. As such, everything I post is my opinion. You may or may not agree with my opinion, but I have every right to post it on my site. I run this site in whatever manner I choose to, and will continue to do so. I set policies based solely on my own recognizance and that’s just the way it is.

Comment Policy

Any opinions expressed by people in their comments are their opinions, and not mine. I take no responsibility for what anybody says in their comments. I encourage comments to be opinionated, thoughtful and respectful. That being said, I do moderate comments. This means that I reserve the right to delete, edit or moderate any and all comments made on this blog. Your comment is more likely to be moderated or deleted if it contains hateful content (based on race, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, etc), is a personal attack or threat toward another commenter, is entirely unrelated to the entry topic, features more than a “fair use” amount of someone else’s copyrighted work, if I deem you are trolling, or for any other reason that I choose. If this policy does not work for you, then don’t comment.
