We do not accept comments from visitors. When visitors attempt to leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. That information is deleted periodically when we delete spam.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here:


We do not accept image uploads from visitors.
