The Weirding does not intentionally employ cookies nor collect user data of any kind.  If any of our third-party apps, services, or vendors do, we have no control over that -- we refer you to their specific sites for more information on what is collected and how that information is used.  

The Weirding has been online for nearly 15 years and, over that time, we have tried many services, plug-ins, and so forth.  The possibility that some of these remain on the site somewhere is very high.  We do not have our own server, and outsource most of our features (including this blog).

We have always been big proponents of personal freedoms and privacy, but we have little to no control over third parties.  We have long championed the idea that companies such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, and others are in violation of Anti-Trust laws, and should be held accountable to greater levels, but we don't work for any of those companies, and use of their goods and/or services does not, in any way, shift responsibility to us.

Regardless of where you are physically located, be aware that cookies related to The Weirding, and/or services used by or on The Weirding, may be placed on your system, but we don't know what they collect, nor how to access that data, and we absolutely do not sell this information to, nor share it with, anyone.

The Weirding is physically located in the United States of America, and is not subject to foreign nations' laws or strictures. -- we aren't even subject to the laws of other states within the United States  Attempts of any nature meant to force The Weirding to comply to foreign nations' laws, strictures, and/or court rulings will be considered extra-judicious.  This also applies to non-national and unrecognized entities, including (but not limited) to -- ISrael, institutions of any nature, and other corporations, occupations, territories, tribal collectives, and settlements.

UPDATES May 2016

I am still working on the social media accounts issue(s), but I have gotten some other work done. Thanks to some spurious information I received, I uninstalled Flash from my system and now I can't get it to reinstall under FireFox. Chrome says it is built-in, but I don't use Chrome much (unless I have to -- which appears to now be the case, if I want to use Flash). Honestly, it seemed to be more trouble than it was worth anyway.

Updated Dungeons & Dragons page.
Updated Fantasy Directory
Updated Sci-Fi Directory

UPDATES - March, 2016

I know it's been a year since I updated the weblog, but I haven't had a computer! Besides, all the changes I've made since then have been minor.

Published 503 error page
Updated Home, Entertainment, 403, 404 design
Updated weblog design, content

There is an issue with commenting on some of the blogs due to a conflict with Google+.

April Updates

We've almost finalized the new design, we're just hammering-out new issues as we go. Still, everything is mostly set in place. You are welcome to visit and let us know what you think - we'd love to hear from you!

The OddBlog was never about recording every, little incident which defies rational explanation but, instead, a sort of curated collection of the weird and inexplicable. The Cybercultralist was always about Cyberculture, not merely a technology magazine. If you thought I'd abandoned these outlets, you're wrong; I simply have not had time to maintain them properly and they've strayed from their roots.

But, now that the heavy-lifting is over on The Weirding, I'm going to have more time to post. Very soon, all of the blogs will be active once again (including this one).you just have to wait it out.

One of the fields into which we are moving is audio/visual. We are still collecting gear and software to aid us in our endeavors but we hope to be prepared to bring you a far superior show (production-wise, at least) as well as maybe some other fare (podcasts, shorts, and more). Note that, due to financial constraints, this will not start happening for a few more months and it will be a few weeks before you start noticing major changes.

We'll do our best to roll-out everything smoothly and with as little incident as possible.

A Note on Content

I wanted to note that by including certain works or articles, The Weirding does not condone criminal or malicious behavior. We appeal to a certain subsect of society that appreciates the deviance in humanity and we believe that while there are things to be learned from such, the behavior itself is an illness that cannot be tolerated by any means.

The inclusion of such material is in no way meant to promote deviant behavior of any kind. I simply find some of the things such people wrote and said to be profound even in ways I'm certain they didn't mean. Studies have proven that in areas where pornography is readily available, the incidences of sexual-related crime decreases, yet Ted Bundy insisted the common factor amongst violent criminals with whom he had contact had one thing in common. This was a popular notion at the time, remember; serial killer Ted Bundy backs the Moral Majority's opinion on pornography.

Either way, The Weirding covers a lot of territory and the inclusion of some objectionable material is noted on the entrance.
