1. THIS IS MY BLOG.
This blog exists to give me, Payce, and whoever I might invite to write on this blog, the freedom to swear, curse, whine, bitch, brag, yell, rant, ramble or generally mouth off about everything and anything I feel like. No one is forcing anyone to agree with, accept, understand, comprehend or appreciate anything I write, post or publish in any shape or form – this blog is 100% me, myself and mine.
Having that said – you’re welcome to comment on my writing here. Just remember that this is my blog – maintained and updated with my time and resources. I don’t owe you anything, and by posting here you are tacitly agreeing to play by my rules.
2. STUFF I DON’T AGREE WITH.
Racism, sexism, homophobia. These topics will immediately and without warning get canned. Hard. No exceptions. Respect your co-poster’s right to be themselves, end of story.
Trolling, spamming, flaming, personal attacks and insults, religious and political propaganda will reliably irritate and/or piss me off, and be moderated on a case-to-case-basis. I reserve the right to be judge, jury and executioner as and when I see fit regarding what should be removed and not.
Advertising will usually get the canning treatment – if you want to post a link to something Games Workshop, Warhammer or similarly related (your own blog or website included), feel free to contact me in advance and you’ll find I can be rather reasonable.
3. STUFF I DON’T MIND.
Cursing, swearing, profanity, I don’t mind one bit. I’ll likely use it more than enough myself. As long as it’s used intelligently and coherently, I see no reason to censor or whitewash foul language.
Disagreeing with my stuff – go right ahead. If you think I’m wrong, tell me. If you think I suck, tell me. If you think I’m being an arsehole, tell me. Just remember to add why you’re telling me. A simple “ure fucking lame” will get canned – a more eloquent “I think you’re full of shit – [topic] was clearly mishandled compared to [reference]” will get my attention and most likely also a reply.
I am not your government. I’m a person on the internet writing about toy soldiers. As such, your freedom of speech does not necessarily compel me to publish your words. If I find anything you post objectionable, I will happily delete it without a second thought when I notice. This is called censorship, and I have not trouble enforcing it if that’s what needed to keep a constructive atmosphere.
5. LEGAL STUFF.
Remember that once you press “submit”, you’re applying permanence to your statement. I will or will not delete posts and comments at my own discretion – ask me nicely to remove something and I’ll probably be reasonable about it. But I reserve the right to let whatever I choose stand at my discretion. If you want to post something very controversial, I recommend checking out this basic guide to libel for idiots first.
By hitting the “submit” button you are granting me a non-exclusive license to publish your words around the world in electronic or other forms. You should assume that anything you post here may remain on the internet and be readable by anyone at all for the foreseeable future, and not just on my blog. My blog is on a server I do not control, it is crawled by Google and it adheres to the copyright law of the United States of America (where the server storing the blog is located).
6. GL, HF!
Most of this page sounds a lot stricter than the nature of this blog really is, and does not apply to 90% of the average readers and posters. Don’t be those final 10% and we can all have a good time. Finally, feel free to throw rotten tomatoes at this page – just remember points 2, 3 and 5, and we’re golden.
