Here it is, the big disclaimer.
Heretofore and unto now, this WordPress hosted weblog has had to rely exclusively on the blanket disclaimer provided for the corporate body of WordPress addresses. While this kind of disclaimer is usually sufficient to protect a blogger from liability, it falls short when dealing with inherently offensive content, websites with a mind of their own and authors who are excessively paranoid about being dragged into court. With the above firmly borne in mind, we propose the following weblog disclaimer:
A Crazy Man With A Blog (hereafter “this website”) will abide by, adhere to, accept responsibility for, endure under and act with respect toward the following weblog disclaimer:
By accessing this website, a web browser (hereafter user) is consents that s/he is familiar with, understands and absolutely accepts the following weblog disclaimer:

We can try, but this disclaimer frees us of any liability if negative consequences result from our efforts.
Please contact your local bar association, law society, neighborhood association of jurists, medical board, county hospital, phone book, online directory, local emergency number in your jurisdiction, mother or Google to find a or obtain a referral to a competent professional. If you do not have reasonable means of contacting an attorney-at-law, lawyer, civil law notary, barrister, solicitor, medical professional, coroner or any other professional in the area of your inquiry, meaning you are an orphaned, computer-illiterate social hazard, please exit this window and get your life in order.

Things I Take Responsibility For:
This is a personal blog. All opinions expressed here are my own and not those of anyone else. I am responsible for the content – not anyone else. If I ever have an employer he/she would not be responsible. Any group, organization, church, agency or entity that I may be associated with would not be responsible either. It’s all about me, me, me, only me, and I like it that way.
- Mistakes and Stupidity:
I may make a mistake or say something stupid. Actually, chances are pretty good that I’ll do both at some point. I’ll do my best to refrain from stupidity (It’s ironic that I had to retype “stupidity” three times to get it right) but I don’t make any promises. I’m only human and make mistakes just like everyone else – probably more than everyone else. Waaay more. Just for the record; any mistakes belong to me and me alone. Not that I want to claim them but since they’re mine I’m kinda stuck with them.
- Changing my Mind:
Over time my thoughts and opinions may change. In fact, Teacher will tell you it’s a sure bet that I’ll change my mind – often. Posts are intended to give insight into my life at the time the post is written, but not necessarily forever. Current posts may express different opinions than earlier posts. We do the best we can with what we know at the time, and as we learn more we do better. Right?
Since most everything in the blog comes from my brain, it belongs to me. It’s still all about me. But if you like a post feel free to link to it! You may use a portion less than 1/3 if you’re going to be picky of a post as long as you link to the original post and give me credit. If you want to use more than 1/3 of a post please contact me to request permission. I’ll probably say “Sure, go ahead!” Thank you for respecting my intellectual and the not-so-intellectual property.
Things I’m not Responsible for:
- Eternal Accuracy:
The information in this weblog is provided “as is” with no warranties, and confers no rights. I’ll do my best to make sure all the information, including links, are accurate at the time of posting but there’s no guarantee that information posted today will still be valid or accurate in the future.
- Incoming Links:
I can’t control who links to me. If I could you can bet I’d be setting myself up for some major PR juice! If you see a questionable site linking to my blog take it up with them, not me. I don’t submit my blog to “link farms” or directories so if they find me it was all on their own.
- Personal Offense:
I promise to try my best not to not knowingly injure, defame, or libel anyone. Posting that Aunt Mabel’s puce sweater is hideous doesn’t count cuz that’s my opinion. Please don’t tell Aunt Mabel! If content matter, bad grammar, slang or punctuation translates or is interpreted into something bad in your country or culture it was certainly not my intent and I will not be held responsible for it. If you’re bound and determined to find insult where none was intended feel free to close the window and not return.
- Bad Decisions:
My intention is to do no harm just like the witches in my favorite Nora Roberts books but without the whole power thing. I’m not a doctor, lawyer, therapist, trainer, chef, or any other type of trained expert so what I write is not to be taken as fact nor absolute. Use your own brainpower instead of mindlessly making decisions based on what I write. You won’t be compensated in any way if you suffer a loss/damage/inconvenience because of something written in this blog.
- Making Money:
At one time I was 100% against accepting any money for writing on A Crazy Man With A Blog. Then I had to renew the domain, pay hosting, and gasp! ran out of coffee money all in the same month! After careful consideration I decided that it was possible to fund my caramel macchiato habit while keeping my integrity. For instance, the ads at the bottom of my posts, will hopefully cover yearly hosting and coffee expenses. Hosting is easy; it’s the coffee allowance I’m worried about. I’m still against paid recommendations disguised as personal opinion, so anything I rave about is because I want to share something amazing with you – not because I was paid to say it. However, I’m willing to consider sponsored posts if the product or service is one I’d really truly use or have used and like. No matter what, I promise that anything I write here is my own honest opinion – whether I’m getting coffee allowance for it or not.
Feel free to disagree with me or tell me I’m completely crazy in the comments section of each blog entry. Please be polite because my feelings are easily hurt. I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason whatsoever – like abusive, profane, rude, anonymous comments, and spam. Once a comment passes moderation I won’t be held responsible for the contents of blog comments. And I’m not responsible for any laws that may be broken in any country through the content, implication, and intent of blog comments. Don’t bother commenting just to spam your site cuz I’m on to you and will delete your comment. I’ve heard that Viagra doesn’t work anyway. But if you’re leaving an honest-to-goodness comment please link to your blog or site – I’d love to see it!
- Matching Socks:
I may take responsibility for getting myself dressed every morning but I don’t promise I’ll be wearing matching socks – sometimes two go in but only one comes out.
If you run into any problem, please let me know ASAP, so I can have my people contact your people, who will then contact my people, about people stuff.
