I utilize Rakuten, formerly Linkshare, for rotating banners—728×90 at the top and 300×250 on the sidebar. These banners are randomly rotated and are not targeted.

I initiated my newsletter on November 1, 2008, debuting with the inaugural issue. Continuously, I circulated weekly issues until the final edition on November 18, 2023. However, I reconsidered and revived the newsletter on December 2, 2023, resuming weekly releases until January 6. Regrettably, that concluding issue marked a farewell – a final goodbye. In total, my newsletter comprised 785 issues.

Visitors are not required to register for an account to comment on posts.

WordPress automatically collects the IP addresses of commenters. Details about how long WordPress retains these IP addresses can be found in its privacy policy. I utilize these addresses solely to maintain the website, banning individuals who violate rules.

While commenters are prompted to provide a name and email address with their comments, the email address remains unpublished. There is no verification process for the authenticity of these details.

I reserve the right to implement future verification procedures or require commenters to register and log in, potentially using their real names. In the event of such a requirement, the name used by trans individuals will be honoured if they do not identify with their legal name.

Under no circumstances do I sell, rent, lend, or share user information. However, if legally compelled, I may comply with law enforcement requests, though most are typically declined.

Rest assured, I value user privacy and do not prioritize personal information.
