then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."

Comments

You’re our guest here. We value your opinion and are happy to provide you with a forum in which to express it. However, if you abuse our hospitality or use our site to injure someone, we reserve the right to throw you out.

Plumb Bob Blog allows you to post comments on the site, provided that you first identify yourself with a valid e-mail address. Plumb Bob Blog reserves the right to modify requirements for posting at any time; we may require registration before commenting, discontinue our policy of allowing comments, or apply any other criterion for posting comments, at our discretion.

By supplying your valid email address to post comments, you warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that you are solely responsible for your account’s activity.

We reserve the right to delete your comments for any reason. We usually wont’ do so simply because we disagree with you, although we do have that right. We will, however, delete your comment if you post something that is, in our good-faith opinion, (a) off-topic; (b) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates, or encourages others to violate, these terms of use or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (c) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, randomly build up web link statistics, or otherwise promote goods and services. The determination of whether a comment meets any of these criteria is entirely at the discretion of Plumb Bob Blog.

In extreme cases, Plumb Bob Blog reserves the right to block specific IP addresses or domain names from accessing and viewing Plumb Bob Blog. This will rarely occur; however, Plumb Bob Blog will use all legal means to protect itself from visitors deemed abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, libelous, offensive, false, or which otherwise violates, or encourages others to violate, these terms of use or any law.

Trackbacks

Plumb Bob Blog allows third-party websites to send trackbacks to its posts, but we may, in our absolute discretion, disable this option for particular posts or discontinue our general policy of allowing trackbacks at any time.

We reserve the right to delete trackbacks for any reason. As with comments, we typically won’t delete a trackback merely because we disagree with the post it comes from. We will, however, usually delete trackbacks from posts that are, in our good-faith opinion, (a) off-topic; (b) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violate or encourage others to violate these terms of use or any law, including intellectual property laws; (c) “spam,” i.e., attempts to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. We will also usually delete trackbacks from posts that do not link or otherwise reference the post on www.plumbbobblog.com that they are tracking back to. The determination of whether a comment meets any of these criteria is entirely at the discretion of Plumb Bob Blog.

In extreme cases, Plumb Bob Blog reserves the right to block specific IP addresses or domain names from accessing and viewing Plumb Bob Blog.
