The Blog Commandments
I. Commenting here is a privilege, not a right.
II. Disagreement is welcome, even encouraged, but spam, unduly profane, or offensive speech is subject to removal by the staff and management of this blog. (Insults from anonymous trolls hardest hit.)
III. Any graphics I cobble together that have the Proof Positive address on them are fair game, so feel free to use whatever you like. A simple link in return is all we ask. (Credit or blame where due.)
IV. The artwork that John does is his own, so you should write him for permission to use it. V. As a matter of policy, I never knowingly print lies or untruths in my blog or Tweets, unless I'm quoting correctly the liberal who told them. VI. Follow me on Twitter: @Proofblog
If you like what you see here, consider hitting ye olde tip jar.
