I reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, upon determination that removal is necessary.

Copyright to original content on this blog belongs to Sanjeev Sabhlok. Please feel free to reproduce it with appropriate referencing.

Many of the reports and articles on this site contain copyrighted material whose use may not have been specifically authorized by the copyright owner. I am making this material available to readers in an effort to advance the understanding of different issues related to this site. I believe this constitutes a ‘fair use’ of the copyrighted material as provided for in Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107 of the US Copyright Law. If you wish to use such copyrighted material for purposes of your own that go beyond ‘fair use’ you must obtain permission from the copyright owner.

Wherever possible I aim to provide only small extracts from other sources. However, for educational purposes I sometimes provide entire sections from other sources. Should you be a source provider with any objection to such use, please write to me at sabhlok AT gmail DOT com. The intent of using such material is educational and not for profit. 

I am usually scrupulous about correctly attributing quotes, reports and articles to the original author and publication. Occasionally, I may slip on this and either attribute incorrectly or forget it completely. However, this would never be intentional. If you ever come across something on my blog which has been improperly attributed (or worse, not attributed at all), I shall be grateful for alerting me so that the mistake can be rectified.

Images and thumbnail versions of pictures added to blog posts are usually but not always attributed, often being taken from google images. Explicit copyright permission of the owner(s)/author(s) may not have been obtained in case of each and every image. If you feel any picture or image is a violation of copyright, kindly bring this to my attention by sending an email to sabhlok AT gmail DOT com.

Comments policy

See this and this first. I tend to publish only comments that add DISTINCT value.  

NOTE THAT ON 24 SEPTEMBER 2013 I'VE FURTHER TIGHTENED MY COMMENTS POLICY. Only specific rebuttals (with evidence) will henceforth be published.

By submitting a comment on this site, you are implicitly warranting that you will not post remarks/comments that may violate the laws of land.

If you do not wish to grant me these rights, please do not submit information to this blog. 

I reserve the right to select, edit and arrange submissions, and to remove information from this blog at any time at my sole discretion. [This is something I very rarely do, and largely if a commentator requests – e.g. if you have made a typo or other error you can request a correction]

As commentator you are responsible for what you say on this blog. “Comments”, views and opinions submitted to this blog reflect the individual views of commentators and I am not accountable or liable for them in any way, now or in future. Publishing of the comment (or links) on this site does not necessarily mean that I approve, support, endorse or encourage the opinions, thoughts or feelings (or any other content) expressed therein. It should not be assumed that I agree with or otherwise endorse any particular comment or comments just because I let them remain on the site. Furthermore, the site owner and/or publisher cannot be held liable for comments.

Comments deletion policy

I reserve the right to delete, edit or modify any comment submitted to this site without prior notification and/or explanation.

I tend to publish only comments that add DISTINCT value.

Please stick to civil language. Refrain from personal insults. Avoid dismissive arguments. And no abuse or vulgarity allowed. Comments that choose the ad hominem pathway and stray outside the ISSUES under consideration will be rejected. I generally delete comments that I deem to be offensive, libelous, slanderous, abusive or otherwise irrelevant. No notification is sent. 

Please find the relevant thread to post your comments. Random and/or unrelated comments (or those with tenuous links to the posts) will not be published. Off-topic comments are likely to be deleted, given limitations of time to place them in the right place. 
Commentator ban policy
a) Ad hominem: Debate the issue not the person. Repeated ad hominem attacks will get you permanently banned from this blog (or at least till I start receiving serious discussion from you). 
b) Foul language or display of aggressionFoul language or display of aggression will get you banned and transferred to spam. One strike and you are out. I do not sympathise with foul-mouthed/ aggressive boors.
Policy re: threatening commentators

Should you post a threatening comment, expect defensive action that may include the publication of your IP address or a direct report to the police. 

I honour your email address and don't disclose/ misuse it. But if you act badly, be prepared for unexpected defensive action.
