“I Am Not A Hamster” is a personal blog written and edited by me. In it I write about things that interest me and/or that I feel need to be mentioned. From time to time I will be writing about products, services, websites and assorted other topics in posts sponsored by one or more advertisers.

Any claims, statistics or other statements about a product or service mentioned on this blog should be verified with the manufacturer or provider thereof.

The opinions expressed in this blog are entirely my own regardless of the topic and whether or not an entry or link is sponsored.

I will not endorse a product or service that I link to unless that’s actually what I WANT to do.

From time to time I will publish posts that are entirely or partially fictional in nature. I leave it up to the reader to determine which posts are fictional and which are true.

Comments from readers are welcome and encouraged.

Due to excessive spamming and my growing intolerance of the need to deal with it, “dofollow” comments are a thing of the past and they will NOT return.

ANY urls in comments are automatically suspect and are subject to me either removing the url / link code or just deleting the entire comment. Simply put, any link in a comment had better have an extremely obvious relevance to the discussion or it’s going to get nuked.

I reserve the right to delete any comment at any time, for any reason or for no reason.
