We take reasonable precautions to prevent spambots from accessing the email addresses of our ezine authors. We don’t use live email links and the @ is replaced with [at] in email addresses to foil the spambots. If anyone knows of other tricks that help, feel free to contact us and share them.


If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter, you need to provide us with a valid email address. We don’t ask for any other information.

Forum FAQ

When you register to post on the forums, you agree to be bound by the following conditions:

While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
