The blog uses a traffic tracking system that allows measurement of daily viewing. Your IP (Internet Protocol) number, generally unique to a location but not according to the courts a person, may show up in that software. If you are viewing from work, your employer’s name, if it is registered with the IP, may also show in that software. The IP information is only stored for a day or so at a time. WordPress also puts that number with every comment you make.

If the law asks for an IP assigned to a comment, it will be provided.

At this time those who comment here do not need to be registered to do so. Anonymous comments are allowed. While the template has a place for your email address, you need not provide one for the comment to appear.

Any email address received by the blog will not be sold to any other blog or advertiser. No political party or campaign will ever have access to the information here unless that campaign is personally of one of the blog contributors.

This blog will soon accept advertising. The type of ad is determined by forces beyond my comprehension. The blog will make every attempt to keep advertising clear of sex or drugs. No doubt there will be political advertisement generated through the clearinghouse. This does not imply an endorsement of the candidate by this blog, A Very Small Publishing Empire, LLC, or any contributor.

A contact for advertising will be given as soon as the specifics are arranged.

Funding Disclosure

This blog currently runs at a deficit to the company A Very Small Publishing Empire, LLC. It is not funded by any organization, political party, or candidate beyond that revenue that might be generated through the advertising clearinghouse.

Respect of copyright

It is this blog’s policy to treat the content of others with respect. Links will be made to source materials, and will be appreciated when this blog is the source. Quotes will be kept to a two paragraph maximum. Entire post or article content will not be republished UNLESS that content is no longer available on the internet and pertains to a current political candidate. If that is a problem to the original publisher, please contact Cindy Kilkenny at cindy.kilkenny(at)gmail(dot)com and expect a prompt resolution.

Photos may be imbedded from the original source and credited. Photos from other sources will not be stored on this blog’s server without written permission of the copyright holder. If there is a problem with a photo you own being embedded in a post, please contact cindy.kilkenny(at)gmail(dot)com.


Comments are a vital part of blogging. We appreciate your participation. Comments are owned by the commenter, not by A Very Small Publishing Empire, LLC.

Comments will not be edited except by the express and written request of the commenter. There is a device on the blog that allows you to request for the deletion of a comment. It automatically hides the comment until deletion is approved. Deletion is not guaranteed. A commenter currently has several minutes to edit a comment before that comment is final. (And typos happen folks. Keep your cool.)

In contrast, a comment can be deleted for any reason by the post contributor, but again, a comment will never be edited by anyone other than the original author without written permission.
