Except where noted otherwise, everything on this site was authored by me, and I retain all copyright rights in the site’s content. There is no Creative Commons license; I’ve somewhat explained this position elsewhere.

You can use, cite, copy, interpret, and review any of the material on this site without first asking for my permission, so long as you identify me as the author. That’s the deal: it’s a simple one, both to understand and abide. I always appreciate a link back to the original post, but understand if that is impossible in certain media.

I am pretty liberal about use of and sharing the content when it is with attribution and for non-commercial use. But I am fanatical about attribution and will not hesitate to take appropriate action if there is unauthorized commercial use. I consider all content scraping (as that term commonly is understood) and reposting elsewhere to be an unauthorized commercial use, even with attribution.

If you do not understand these terms, feel free to contact me. I am sure we can arrange a mutually satisfactory solution.
