About The Site

Comments Policy

While comments are encouraged on The Checkmate Scientist, there are some minor conditions, mostly because of the a small number of people that enjoy abusing their ability to think and type.

So, I'd like you to share your thoughts, and I won't edit any comments for their content or links.  However, I will delete any comments that I feel don't belong here.  Generally speaking, those fall into one or more of the following categories:
  • Spam and/or advertisements
  • Comments that digress far from the post's topic (find another post to comment on!)
  • Posts that add little to no value
  • Comments that are personal attacks and/or hate speech

In addition, not all posts will have comments enabled.  Usually these will be short comments on other content linked to.

Legal Stuff

First, a short disclaimer.  The views and opinions on The Checkmate Scientist do not necessarily reflect those of anyone I know, have worked with or for, or of any organization I may be affiliated with.  I thought that went without saying but nevertheless here it is.

I also want to emphasize that I'm not a health professional or a physician, and though many topics may cover subjects that are medical in nature, no opinions on this site should be taken as medical advice. 

Occasionally some pages will link to books and products on Amazon.  Please note that www.checkmatescientist.net is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, and the Amazon.com.ca, Inc.
