Translation: While I love it when others share my blog, I’ve come across several places where a significant portion (or all) of a blog entry has been copied onto other websites without proper authorization or citation. I don’t believe it’s been done maliciously, but it does violate my copyright. A sentence or two as a quote is fine as long as it clearly references Our Life After Combat: Elevated (TorreyShannon.com) as the author/source, but if you wish to use a paragraph or more for any reason (and linking doesn’t meet your needs), my authorization is needed first. I’m willing to work with other blogs or websites that wish to use my material as long as the proper form is followed with regard to credit and permission. You can email me if you have any questions: torrey (at) torreyshannon (dot) com.
Basically, don’t steal my content or words! This site represents a lot of hard work, both on my end and on others’. Please respect me and those who contributed to this site and follow the instructions I’ve provided — and don’t run afoul of the law. Thank you! <3
I welcome and encourage comments and feedback. I love hearing from readers and often find additional insight in what others have to say. I enjoy debates and respect differences. If you post a comment and it doesn’t show up immediately, please be patient. All comments are held awaiting approval and spam filtering. I try to keep the pending period as short as possible so check back later to see your comment.
I do request that comments contain something relevant to the topic to help me weed through spam faster. This is especially important for those who wish to express disagreement.
I reserve the right to delete any comments that I find racist, sexist, misogynistic, hateful, violent, overly judgemental, or otherwise offensive. Moreover, I also reserve the right to use or reference any comments or messages that attempt to convert, judge, or attack, and I don’t promise to be nice about it. Basically, if you show respect, I’ll show respect.
Please remember… If I allow a comment, that does not count as an automatic endorsement of what someone is saying. Please act with discretion in trusting what others claim. I do not have the resources to verify everyone’s honesty.
