The only personally-identifying information I receive from you is your email address and your thoughts, when you leave a comment on one of my posts. Even then, I keep your email address private.
In the comment form (present at the bottom of some essays), you may check the box that asks whether you want this website to remember you the next time you comment. If you choose to do so, that is the point at which you will be asking this site to set cookies in your browser. The box is deselected by default, and it’s completely optional.
Also on the comment form, you may choose to enter your website address. If you do so, it will make a hyperlink from my site to yours. Magical!
I reserve the right to moderate, edit, or delete comments.
