Disclaimers & Copyright
SCIENCE DISCLAIMER: I write about and discuss many scientific studies and/or concepts on Clastic Detritus. If you are a student and/or researcher please refer to the original papers/studies I discuss. Do not cite this blog for formal research! Go to the library and read the peer-reviewed papers. Although I am a practicing scientist, those activities are done primarily in the peer-reviewed literature. Blogging about science is not the same as doing science.
I do not directly debate the irrational zealots of the science punditry and other crackpots about their pet hypotheses. Most of them refuse to actually do any of their own analysis and are simply trying to push buttons and hijack discussion threads (i.e., they are trolls). Directly engaging them is a gigantic waste of time.
OPINION DISCLAIMER: Opinions expressed on this blog are my own. They do not represent anyone else, including former, current, or future employers.
COMMENTING POLICY: Please keep discussions civil. Comments that have nothing to do with the post in question may be moderated. Repeated abuse will result in banning. Ultimately, I reserve the right as blog owner to block or ban anyone for whatever reason I want.
GUEST POSTING: This is my personal blog, I do not use it for ‘guest posts’ from others. And even if I were to use it for a guest post it would not be from someone I do not know/trust who e-mails me out of the blue. Therefor, do not e-mail me to ask if you can use this space for a guest post. If you do e-mail me to ask this, do not be surprised if I never reply.
COPYRIGHT INFORMATION: All photographs on this blog were taken by me unless otherwise noted. If you are an educator and would like to use any photographs/images (for non-commercial purposes) please do so. If you’d like a higher-resolution version of something, please e-mail me. If I’ve posted something I shouldn’t have, please let me know and I will happily remove it.
