In the interest of FULL DISCLOSURE, there is a particularly interesting partial SCREENSHOT of the home page here.

This is a Thumbnail of the particularly interesting partial SCREENSHOT above. The really fine print is not legible, but if it's slightly oversized, it can be read in the thumbnail. Generally, in the thumbnail, you can't read the fine print. In the fine print I say that I'm using all of these copyrighted and trademarked seals and logos and images without the permission of the intellectual property owners. I am stating that these parties are not endorsing my website and that I am not related to them in any capacity. I state that my ideas and suggestions might affect them or might be related to their industries or areas of interests and that I am addressing these parties and institutions.

I allow commentary on the home page and variants of "Cool." I may not stay with DISQUS but right now it suits me - at least in these places.
