Errors or Material Omissions

    If you see any errors in an article or story here, please tell me.  I will fix it if I made an important mistake (it could happen), although again all the actual facts here are drawn from sources that are already public.  I won’t necessarily change or delete something that is true just because you ask me to do that.  But I might.


    A blog is always in transition. The world is an ever-changing place, which means that content can become outdated quickly. The information published today might not be valid or accurate two weeks or two years from now. Content, sources, information and links change over time, we cannot be held liable for this constant changes. While we hope to avoid having outdated material on our site, we can’t guarantee that everything is timely, so don’t rely on the timeliness or accuracy of the information on the site. (Only a lawyer (liars) would put out information to impress you and then say “don’t rely on it.” And while we don’t want to come across like other lawyers or liars, we don’t want to have to update our website every night either.)

    Our intention is to do no harm. Not to injure others, defame, or libel. What we write on your blog is not to be taken as fact nor absolute. If people use our advice, tips, techniques, and recommendations, and are injured, we are not to be held responsible.

    If we write a satire article or a blog post against a person or organization and resulted into a torrent of ridicule to that person or organization. We cannot held criminally or civilly responsible for the negative publicity that person or organization gets. We are protected under fair use policy of the law.

Commenting Policy
    We never censor comments based on ideological point of view. We reserve the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice due to;
1. Comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam
2. Comments including profanity
3. Comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive
4. Comments that attack a person individually

Public Forums
    This site makes forums and message boards available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

Email-responding policy

    I try but can’t always.  NOTE: the chances of me even reading an email are greatly reduced if it:
1. has no subject line at all;
2. the subject or sender include the words “Viagra,” “cialis,” “penis,” or any other French words; or
3. the sender’s name has a middle initial displayed, which seems to be a spam indicator, especially if the name is something like “Brad Pitt” (the name on one email I actually received). If your real name actually is "Kim Kardashian” or anything like it, I apologize for not writing you back but suggest that you make up a normal-sounding fake name for purposes of writing me.  Also that you use that name for all other purposes too for the rest of your life.


    If any of the content of this disclaimer notice is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under the applicable law, that will have no bearing on the enforceability of the rest of the disclaimer notice and the illegal, invalid or unenforceable part shall be amended to the minimum extent necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable.

    Nothing in this disclaimer notice shall serve to limit or exclude any liability for death or personal injury arising from negligence, or for fraud, or for anything else which it would not be lawful for to exclude.

If there is any dispute about or involving the site, by using the site, you agree that the dispute will be governed by the laws of Timor-Leste without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

    We reserve the right to revise and amend this disclaimer notice from time to time and any revised version will be deemed to be applicable from the first date of publication on this website. 

    Just in case. If I say something stupid in the future, it’s better to be able to point out that the stupidity is mine, and mine alone. My stupidity! You can’t have it! :)
