  1. Opinions stated here are mine and mine alone.
  2. I am not to review or post about anything here so don’t even try to bribe me :). But if you represent a cool home product or local business hit me up as I love to share information about these things!

Comment Policy:

  1. I believe Web 2.0 to be a conversation and as such I encourage comments. I love to hear from you guys!
  2. I think that people should be civil when engaging in conversation and as such I ask that you respect that.
  3. I encourage differing points of view… as long as you realize you are wrong and I am right :). Seriously though I welcome civil differences of opinion.
  4. As much as SPAM is appreciated and embedded in Hawaiian culture, it is also an annoyance in the Web 2.0 world. When Spam is found in comments it will be deleted.
  5. In addition to commercial Spam, I also recognize blatant self-promotion and advertising when I see it. It’ll likely also be deleted.
  6. Personal attacks and rude comments will be removed. Let’s all be nice!
  7. This is not a children’s website and I am no prude when it comes to profanity. I have dropped an f-bomb once or twice myself. Still let’s Be prudent when including profanity in comments.
