Additional blog and comment terms and conditions

The views expressed by bloggers reflect the views and opinions of the authors, whether OmStout employees, guests, and materials by reference. This blog does not necessarily reflect the views or positions of OmStout Consulting or affiliated/related companies.

  • Comments are welcomed and encouraged on this site, but responses are moderated and publication is at the absolute discretion of OmStout Consulting
  • It is at our absolute discretion whether we publish any particular response.
  • We won’t publish responses that we think are not appropriate, are likely to end in legal difficulties, and/or appear to be, obscene, libelous (or would require us spending time or money to establish that they aren’t), in some other way illegal (for example, inciting racial hatred, contempt of court, breach of intellectual property rights), incomprehensible, insubstantial, written in capital letters, almost entirely a quote from somewhere else, gratuitously rude, blatant advertising, or are sent by someone who does not provide adequate and accurate personal details including a functioning email address, or from people we suspect have used an alias, or who does not respond to email. We make our own judgments on the sorts of legal issues mentioned above, and our judgments are final.
  • Comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam will be deleted. Including a link to relevant content is permitted, but comments should be relevant to the post topic.
  • Comments including profanity are more likely to be deleted.
  • Comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive will be deleted.
  • Comments that attack a person individually will be deleted.
  • The owner of this blog reserves the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice. This comment policy is subject to change at anytime.
  • Your name or username will be published with your response. If you want your email address to appear , include it in the body of the text of your response.
  • Once published, you will not have the right to remove or edit your response. Removal or editing of responses is at OmStout Consulting’s absolute discretion.
  • By submitting comments or responses you are agreeing to our full response terms and requirements.
  • If only a line or two of an otherwise OK response is defamatory or extremely abusive, we may delete the line and post the rest.
  • Your response must be original and not infringe any third party’s intellectual property rights.
  • We reserve the right to edit responses before and after publication.
  • Once a response has been published on the website, you will not have the right to have it removed or edited in any way. OmStout Consulting, shall, however, be able to remove any article at its absolute discretion.
  • Authors are responsible for the accuracy of what they say in their responses. We cannot check facts, though we may challenge authors if we think they are wrong and may ask them to substantiate what they say- for example by giving a reference. We also do not check references to say that they really say what they are claimed to say, that too is the author’s and reader’s responsibility.
  • While we try to deal with all our authors in as courteous and timely manner as possible, because our threshold for posting responses is low, dealing with potentially contentious responses is a low priority for us.
  • We do minimal editing. We place the onus for correct spelling and punctuation firmly on the authors, and we don’t have to correct these errors before or after publication.
  • We avoid entering into lengthy correspondence about why we have not posted a response, it’s not a good use of our resources and it is at our discretion.
  • If asked to submit any competing interest declaration, this must be done honestly and truthfully.
