1. Statements of Fact.
Parties who have, or claim to have, knowledge related to statements of fact that are made on this website are invited to offer comments, corrections, or clarifications.
This site uses standard httpd logs as well as JS code to collect information of most of the types that a web browser typically broadcasts.
The primary administrator goes further and “gathers information”, a term used in the 2012 to 2013 gag-order cases, outside site contexts for legitimate and reasonable purposes that are protected under U.S. laws.
To review a list of representative legitimate and reasonable purposes, click here.
The primary administrator may publicly disclose and/or reuse information collected in any manner that is deemed appropriate.
The right to analyze, blog, post, quote, “discuss”, or otherwise distribute or make use of information collected or actions or documents or information of any type that is deemed appropriate to use is reserved and may be exercised to the maximum extent possible without further notice at any point in the future.
The word “discuss” is quoted in the preceding paragraph as a reminder to those who were involved in the gag-order cases of where things stand.
To clarify the point:
In gag-order cases that ran from 2012 to 2013, a wife-beater named Jim Kiraly sought to force me to sign a gag order in which I'd agree to go to jail if I were ever to “discuss” him.
I'll be “discussing” Jim Kiraly, Tom Kiraly, Michael Bonetto, Maggie Desmond, John Perrott, and others for years to come.
3. COPPA Notice.
To the best of the primary administrator's knowledge, COPPA,
a law which limits the use of children's information in commercial
or similar contexts, doesn't apply to this site.

I have an IRC bouncer. However, I'm not present, don't assume that either queries will necessarily be received.
5. Site technical notes.
5a. This site uses responsive code. This means that it's supposed to work on your phone.
5b. https, i.e., SSL, support is provided by Let's Encrypt.
5c. The original content on this site may ultimately be released under Creative Commons.
5d. This site is hand-written HTML5 and CSS3 plus a bit of JS and Bootstrap. Just like Grandmother used to bake it.
More about the theme:
The theme is largely OldCoder's own design. The goals are: simple, responsive, practical. Like OldCoder :P
The responsive tables are based on a nice trick documented by Chris Coyier in a 2011 CSS Tricks article.
OldCoder's version of the tables code adds support for multiple tables with different structures on the same page. Transitions are also smoother in general.
