Blog comment policy: Any comment that does not clearly add to the discussion, is offensive, abusive, or of questionable intent will be deleted. Or to put it another way, if I can’t tell whether or not to keep a comment after 5 seconds, consider it gone. Comments fall under the same license as the page on which they appear. Happy writing!
Pronoun policy: I place no requirements (other than good faith) on pronouns used in reference to me. But if you’re looking for something more specific, I have always been referred to as “he” and “him”.
I pledge never to intentionally hurt anyone with pronouns or proper names, but (particularly in social situations) I make no promises about getting yours right.
Likeness Policy: Ask before tagging me on Facebook or other platforms that use and store facial recognition data. Absent written permission, I do not consent to storing or using my remote biometric data.
