Comment Policy – Unless you’re a spammer, you can say what you like. We never censor anyone for disagreeing with ideas expressed on the site.
If for some reason you think someone got your email address from here, you need to contact WordPress about it as I assure you it wasn’t our doing.
Any comment, message, verbal conversation or anything else that anyone tells us ever will never be reproduced on this blog with it being attributed to you except:
1) You’re a public person and speaking publicly as part of your job/duty
2) You give me express written permission to do so
Therefore if we see the mayor of Cluj walking his dog and he tells us something, that’s not something meant for the public. If you send us an email, we won’t use it here (with any kind of identifier). We’ve written thousands of articles and we always attribute it as “a person told me” or “a guy said” or something like that.
If it’s in the newspaper or published on a (public) blog, obviously that’s fair game as it’s “in the public” as part of someone’s “job/duty”.
Usage policy – If you want to repost, quote, link or otherwise re-use anything we’ve written, photographed, filmed or otherwise produced, go ahead. Also, if you want to translate something I wrote into another language, help yourself.
Just be sure to link back or attribute it to where you got it.
Advertising Policy – We have no interest whatsoever in hosting your ads or banners or anything else. We write here for my personal pleasure, not to whore ourselves out for your goods and services.
Currently, WordPress forces us to either pay them to show no ads or to allow me to permit THEIR ads (and their ads only) so right now we allow their ads at the bottom of the screen. This allows us to host the blog for free on my own domain, with enough change left over to buy a cup of coffee once or twice a month.
We have no need for anyone to click on ads or refresh the page a million times or anything like that as it doesn’t help me or anyone else. If you want to block the ads or ignore them, help yourself. If you see something you like, click at your own volition as we get nothing out of it.
Enjoy the site!
