Legal Stuff

Here is all the legal mumbo jumbo we need to keep the peace…

Comment Policy:

We love comments and appreciate the time that our readers spend to share ideas and give feedback. Thank you to everyone who comments at SSAAD.

However, we also want our comments to be as useful as possible to all of our readers. While we keep 99% of comments, we will remove these:

  • Harassing comments: While conversation and the sharing of different ideas is encouraged, all comments need to be respectful towards our contributors and those leaving comments.
  • Anonymous comments: We only accept comments from people who identify themselves.
  • Promotional comments: If a comment is solely promotional in nature, we will remove it from the site.

We reserve the right to remove any comments from the site. Please leave comments that are respectful and useful. Remember what your Mom said: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!” What? Your mom didn’t say that? Well, I’m a Mom. Consider yourself adopted. And I just said it.

Note: All comments by first-time posters are moderated. Additionally, other comments may be moderated based on the settings of our comment filters. If your post does not show up immediately, please allow us 24 hours to moderate the comment. If you still have not seen the comment, please contact us for clarification.
