Terms & Conditions
Unfortunately, due to present-day litigious circumstances, we need a formal legal disclaimer. Here it is:
Disclosure: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.
This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.
To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that all conent, links, reviews, sponsorships, advertising, recommendations and everything else should be viewed as if the writer and/or Freelance MD is the owner of, benefits from, or has been paid by someone.
Each and every thought on this site is our own OPINION. Most comments are made anonymously and should be view with extreme skepticism.

These are our own thoughts and opinions, generated by us, representing our take on things. They - and this blog - are in no way affiliated with any other company that we have any involvement in. If we've made a mistake, it's our fault. If we've said something that makes you laugh, you can usually thank one of the regulars. Of course, you should not rely on anything in the blog as legal, financial, accounting, investment, tax, or any other kind of regulated advice. We are merely dudes trying to have fun with what we do, impart some knowledge, debunk some myths and meet some nice people.
And oh yeah, our co-writers are incorporated herein by reference, which is legalese for "what they say is their own stuff and not affiliated with any of the companies they work for either."
Comments are not moderated although we might find and remove profanity and whatever else might violate our sensibilities. Of course, these points of view belong to the writers and are not necessarily shared by anyone else.
