About

My vision for this blog is to provide you with communicators that don’t normally blog but have great views and information to share. Each of these individuals has been wooed to blog here because I think they have so much to contribute in their area of expertise. PatAlexander.Com will remain the home base for my voice. I will contribute to this site from time-to-time or enter into the conversation via comments on a particular post.

Comments Policy

  1. You must register in order to comment. A number of options are available to you for logging in to post your comment.  Anonymous posting is not allowed on this site.
  2. You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone.  Others are likely thinking similarly.  When your comments on the blog instead of via email, then everyone that is posting to the blog can see the answer.
  3. You may disagree with any of the authors. We welcome debate.  However, I ask that if you disagree with any of us – or anyone posting comments on this blog – do so in a respectful manner.  No shouting.
  4. I reserve the right to delete your comments. This is my blog.  I don’t have an obligation to publish your comments.  The First Amendment give you the right to express your opinions on your blog not mine.
  5. Specifically, I will delete your comments if you post something that is, in my sole opinion, (a) snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit or otherwise promote goods and services.
  6. You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them.   By commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that may result from those postings.
  7. You grant me a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free.  You grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce and distribute your comments in conjunction with my blog.

My goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest and respective people.  I believe this comments policy will facilitate this.
