As part of a site refresh–sadly not including the standard of content but just tinkering with the pretty bits–readers of this website are encouraged to read the new updated About page, which now includes Terms and Conditions for the continued enjoyment, or otherwise, of this site.

The new text is posted here for your information today but will always be available to reference under the heading ‘About’ in future.

Well, I say ‘always’… let’s just go with ‘for now’.

The author of this blog, Bear Humphreys (middle-aged, nondescript Cornishman with relatively few offensively bad characteristics or discernable talents) wishes that anyone interested enough to click the ‘About’ item on the menu should read the following.

Terms and Conditions

i/. By engaging your eyeballs with the variable quality content on the Scribblans blog, you (the reader) give the author (Bear Humphreys t/a Scribblans) the right to either entertain, deeply annoy or disappoint you, or all three, by the provision of said variable quality content on this site by said author.

ii/. The author reserves the right to provide the variable quality content with a variable amount of factual accuracy, ranging from ‘looks plausible in a good light’ to ‘absolute bullshit’. However, it is likely that all of it is absolute bullshit and so should not be taken as anything like any reality the reader is familiar with. On the rare occasions where reality is invoked, source links will be provided so that readers can see for themselves what set the author off this time.

iii/. Readers should be aware that the author will always provide an appropriate level of value in his content for the amount of financial expenditure readers invest in visiting his blog.

iv/. In the event of disputed accuracy, or difference of opinion, the author will carefully consider any complaint made, and evidence offered in support of said complaint, then laugh while deleting said complaint.

v/. The author very much appreciates readers leaving comments on articles on this blog, and will endeavour to reply to those doing so, but warns replies may be construed as either mildly insulting or apparently contain as little sense as the post does.

vi/. The author encourages the sharing of his posts made on the blog by readers to promote the growth and reach of the blog, but accepts that readers may prefer to keep their guilty visits to this site to themselves.

vii/. If, it any point, you (the reader) are annoyed or dismayed by the absolute shambles masquerading as variable quality content provided by the author (Bear Humphreys t/a Scribblans) you may click the ‘x’ button and sod off.
At this point, all previous agreements shall be deemed null and void and your actions treated as ‘fair enough’.

Your continued enjoyment of otherwise of this site indicates that you have agreed to these Terms and Conditions and are happy to continue providing your support for Scribblans for as long as your unfortunate condition allows.

Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good.
This bit of text here used to be me wittering on and effectively begging you to share the post, but I have decided not to bother with all that for 2021. Most people ignore it anyway.
