Occasionally, I may post things that are not even my own opinions or views, but that I might find interesting and deserve consideration.

I hold a fairly steady moral compass, but I also tend to see most issues in various shades, tones, and hues—rarely in black and white. If I seem to contradict myself sometimes, it’s probably because of specifics in the given situation rather than a fundamental shift in attitude or values.

If you do not like what I have to say, then don’t read it. While I am open-minded and consider all sides, I ignore or delete rude comments, flames, trolls, spam, and anything else I find offensive. This blog is not a public forum; it is a personal blog where I can say whatever I feel like saying, and you are free to not read it. If you do comment on anything I have written, please remember you are a guest and act accordingly.

Sometimes I offer advice or recommendations. I make no warranty as to the content of this site or the reliability of any information herein, and any advice or recommendation may not apply in your case. Ultimately you must decide if the information sounds prudent in your situation, and if you act upon it, you do so solely at your own risk.

Active Plugins

Note: I am still tweaking with all these plugins, trying to find the right mixture of convenience, site response time, site protection, functionality, and attractiveness. I don’t recommend or endorse any of the plugins here (at least not yet), because they are still too new to form an opinion.
