Our Comments Policy

We have put together this Comment Policy for us to help you. Please read on:

In the realm of photography and supporting services like digital image processing and DAM [Digital Asset Management] we have quite a lot to offer. Through the various services on our SITE we hope to offer you insights to broaden your own photography experiences and to enhance your photographic expertise..

As a means of “spreading the word”, we have our JOURNAL pages together with the product review sections for you to write and post comments and your reviews.

To facilitate and advance a dialogue and discourse of sorts, we have put together this Comments Policy. Our hope is to help facilitate this dialogue, to combat SPAM and to maintain a level of decorum on this SITE.

While we appreciate each comment and review, if your comments are not consistent with our Comments Policy, those comments may be queued for further review and, if needs be, removed.

Continuous abuse of this policy will result in a permanent ban of the IP address, domain, and the email address used.
