Comments: Most pages will have a comments section, please use it but try and be helpful. All comments are moderated and no comment will ever be allowed to appear that is mean disrespectful just plain stupid or contains spam links.

Spelling errors: We try to see to it this does not happen but we, after all are only human. This means there no doubt will be a few.

If you do this you will get a “SPELLING NAZI” award and you will not like the reply email you get.
Commerce: We do not engage in commerce, nothing here is for sale by us for monetary gain. This website is operated in a non-profit way. We are not an official non-profit corporation though. If some one wanted a front page banner we could arrange that on a trade out basis. Something like “you link to us from your front page and we will link to you”. Don’t ask for a banner if you do not intend to agree to something like this.
