Just posted this over at my blog, and need to post here as well. That said, no need to take up space since not all of it is directly applicable here, so it will be in extended entry for those who want to read on.
The ideas and opinions expressed by me are mine and mine alone. They do not represent the view of any other author, authority, or non-authority blowhard; any U.S. federal, state, or local government agency or administration; the Politburo, the pirates of lower Arbat street, the Diet, or any other foreign government, government agency, or administration; any employer or client; any spouse or significant other; any past, present, or future mother-in-law, in-law, out-law, cousin, aunt, uncle, or other relative; any friend, acquaintance, co-worker, or that strange person down at the coffee shop; any supervisor or person supervised; any organization for which work is done on a paid or volunteer basis; the dog, the cat, and most especially the wolves; and, are neither approved or disapproved by any employer, client, member of the government, or any corporation or other business entity. If any person, agency, organization, employer, or other desires to pre-approve content, they can bite me, knowing that I bite back and have been learning from the best. If any person, agency, organization, employer, or other desires to chastise, reprimand, discipline, demand changes, or otherwise express opprobrium for my thoughts and work posted here, there, anywhere, or even in private, they may do so as allowed by law; however, I once again suggest they bite me. All provisions, decisions, declarations, demarcations, and other are subject to availability and no warranty or guarantee is expressed or implied. Tag, tax, and title are extra.
Any comment or post by another author belongs to them and is their problem, not mine; and, leaving said post or comment up here, there, or elsewhere does not imply or acknowledge acceptance, agreement, or even that it has been read. Comments are subject to the rules as set forth in comments policy, and registering and posting is agreement to and with said policies. Comments are subject to counter-commentary, praise, ridicule, change, deletion, alteration, or pretty much whatever I choose to do either upon mature reflection, profound thought, or wild hair on a whim. Regardless of category of the latter, all decisions are final and not subject to appeal, redress, or even to be given a dress. While the right to an opinion is respected, there is no legal, moral, or ethical requirement that all opinions have to be respected, because quite frankly, some of them are so poorly thought out, posited, or considered so as to be beyond idiotic. Nor do I acknowledge or accept that all opinions have equal value and acceptance by myself or anyone else. They don't. Deal with it.
This concludes the declaration, and we return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
