I thought it might be a good idea to clarify some aspects of policy on this site.

Several people have asked me if they could exchange links with and post guest blogs on this site.  While I don’t in theory close the door on this, there are a couple of conditions to be taken into consideration:

  1. I do not want to publish articles or views on this site with which I do not agree.
  2. I do not want to give even tacit approbation to products recommended by others that I have not tried and tested myself.

This, I suspect, rules out about 99.9% of collaborations.

It’s important to me to ensure the integrity of the site.

Hackers, people with something to sell or with their own agenda are not welcome.  It’s a free internet world: start your own site!


A word about the links on this site.

I may sometimes use an affiliate link (we all have to eat) but often there are direct links to a site or product.  In this case, I do not earn a cent from the recommendation.  I have made the recommendation because I know the site and/or use the product myself and honestly believe that it will help you too.

Any links in comments made by third parties are not my responsibility but if they consistently link back to a product page, I will end up by refusing the comments.

I hope that this is clear.
