It’s becoming customary to describe a site’s policy regarding external links, so I’m going to participate in that custom by describing my links policy here.
I occasionally link to other sites and pages on the Internet. I do this as a service to my visitors–I think recommendations are the best way to find new content on the Internet, so I provide them. That being said, I don’t take any responsibility for the content, tips, advice, or information found on any of the sites I link to. For one thing, I have no control over the content on those pages. For another, content on the Internet can change in an instant–I might recommend a great video poker strategy page one day, and the next day, some spammer could have bought the domain and launched a malware site on that location. I make every effort to keep the links on this site current and up-to-date, but I’m only human, and I can’t be responsible for other Web pages on other sites.
I try to avoid linking to pages that consist of heavy advertising. I also avoid linking to pages that sell anything illegal. Sexually explicit content is another type of content I avoid linking to.
