Privacy Policy:


I respect your privacy. Really.

This blog is hosted on WordPress, and the statistics and comments are also managed by WordPress. So as a part of your privacy, I (may) have your IP address, email id and web address, and your username.

As a single child, I’ve never been very keen to share things. So I promise that I will not share your private information with any third party. Any data that you share on this site will not be published without your consent.

 

Comments Policy:


A comment in my opinion is one of the following:

  • Your way of telling me how smart you are
  • Your way of telling me how dumb you are
  • Your way of telling me how smart I am
  • Your way of telling me how dumb I am

I have enabled comment moderation on this blog because:

  • I don’t trust everyone who visits this blog
  • I get comment notifications which brings your comment to my notice and helps me respond to them in time

On this blog:

  • I’ll allow trolling limited to one comment. I’ll reply in suitable words and block you from commenting again. That is my way of saying STFU honourably. I respect your right to be a troll but don’t abuse that right.
  • I’ll accept any comment and every comment as long as it makes sense. I don’t mind criticism as long as it is level headed.
  • You can use cuss words in all languages as long as what you are saying makes sense and doesn’t offend other readers of the blog
  • I’ll reply to comments as long as the thread makes sense. I’ll answer your queries and discuss everything you want to. But that totally depends on my frame of mind and leisure.

Also, I prefer comments which have an identity so please leave your name and URL. This serves two purposes – One, I can read your blog and Two, I know you are real. By this I mean, real name and real URL. I know you don’t own Yahoo.

Anonymous comments will be allowed for people who love anonymity. But anonymous comments that abuse the anonymity will not be given the respect they could otherwise have deserved. Anonymity isn’t an invisibility cloak for the weak. If you have an opinion, make sure you claim it, don’t leave it here like an orphaned comment.

Again:

  • You can use the comment space to share links to your works or other pieces on the internet. But there is a thin line of difference between pimping and sharing. So, I won’t reply to comments that only contain a link. I will not delete them, but I won’t lend you an ear and I won’t read that link.
  • WordPress actually allows me to edit all comments – my comments as well as your comments. So the power rests with me. I can edit your comment and make you sound like a douchebag. Alternatively I can edit my reply and make myself sound smarter. But I won’t do that. Unless you force me to.
  • I don’t take dictations. I’ll write about everything and anything under the sun as long as I feel I have something to say about it. I’ll refrain from writing flammable stuff, I won’t insult any community intentionally. If I am found guilty of such behaviour, point it out and it will be rectified. Apart from that, the world is my oyster and I’ll will do anything inside it. Heh. *I know I missed the shell part, who cares*

Now,

Everything on this blog is my personal opinion(or opinion borrowed from Google). It does not reflect the opinion of my employer, my wife, my family, my wife’s family, my neighbour, my dabbahwallah or my country’s prime minister. On the same lines, you are what you comment. Your comments belong to you and only you. I do not necessarily endorse the opinion of those who comment. 

If you find a post offensive, mention the reasons in the comment. If I can’t convince you, send me a mail. In the worst case scenario, I’ll pull down the post(I am nice that way).

Again, there is enough communal hatred in the world. Please spare my blog. And I really mean it.

Having said that, do comment on this blog. I appreciate feedback of all kinds. Also understand that I am learning. I make thousands of typos and grammar errors that need to be rectified. Point them out too. I’ll love you for that.

Enough now, go read the blog.

  1. phew!

  2. I have never read your blog, but I’ve become a fan now by reading just this post. By the way, since you mentioned to bring out any typo-error, here’s one. In the paragraph beginning with “Now,”, you have written “You comments belong to you and only you” which should actually be ” ‘Your’ comments belong to you and only you”. Thank you.

    • Thanks for pointing out that mistake! Corrected.

  3. You are a racist .. You are discriminating against poor people like me who dont have a URL… Im anguished and deeply hurt and ( all the words SM Krishna uses ) 😦 ….But jokes apart Pants off to you.. youve turned what could have been a mundane post worth reading .. ( Pants back on)

    • Well, in the words of a certain someone, I am a commenting elite. 😀

      But that is just to filter fake Larry Pages. I apologize for the anguish. Please send a 700 page dossier so that we can understand this better.

      It is a mundane page but I guess this page was required. Remind me to add a *no stripping in comments* clause too. 😀

  4. Bro, u r my guru, mentor now! You are most intelligent, super-duper talented, awesomest, with uber cool sixth sense person i have ever heard of. 007 n einstein are count to zero in front of u! Hail tantanoo! B-)

  5. ooof! Whatever you have or don’t have, always appreciated your patience in writing lengthy articles, and replying equally lengthily to comments. Brownie points for post + editing.

    Please save the blog from.. what was that you said? “drought of posts”. yeah. Keep writing!

    Cheers!

    PS: Why is everything in “leave a comment” in Hindi? And what’s that in the brackets? Marathi?
