Terms of Service

The Smothers Brothers: My Teen Heroes

§  This site is provided for entertainment and/or information purposes only.  Readers (and lawyers) are reminded that content on this site is primarily editorial, satirical or artistic in nature.  But these Terms of Service are serious — who (other than lawyers and the petulant) would want a reader’s random affront by First Amendment-protected speech to devolve into fruitless and protracted legal proceedings?

§  The publisher of this site (namely me) does not guarantee the accuracy of any information included here or that found by following any link on this site.  The publisher will not be liable for errors or omissions, or any losses, injuries or damages from the use of the information mentioned in the previous sentence.

§  The publisher may edit any comment for length, remove objectionable (in my opinion) and commercial content from comments, or refuse to publish any comment for any reason without notice to the commenter.  The publisher does not continuously monitor comments made by the public and will not be liable for the content of comments posted on this site.

§  The publisher makes no effort to obscure email addresses provided by commenters.  Adding an email address to a comment is entirely optional.  Adding an email address implies that the publisher may reply to the commenter via email.  The publisher will not give, sell, or otherwise transfer addresses posted on this site to any other party for the purposes of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, contact.

§  When a visitor makes a comment, the commenter’s IP address is visible to the publisher (but not to the public).  In some cases, IP addresses can indicate the geographic area of the internet service used by the commenter.  The publisher does not share this information.

§  When a visitor comments on a post, cookies from this site are stored on their computer. This is purely a convenience so that the visitor doesn’t need to re-type their information when they want to leave another comment.  Commenting on a post implies that the visitor accepts such cookies.

§  The publisher has no means — that I’m aware of — to track the websites that readers have visited before visiting this site.  If there is such a means, the publisher will not use it.

§  The publisher uses Google Analytics to collect and report statistics such as most popular search terms and most popular pages.  Google Analytics does not provide information on individual visitors.

§  These terms and conditions of use were updated March 8, 2024, and apply to all content published on this site prior to and subsequent to that date.  These terms are subject to change at any time and without notice. –  Craig H Collins, publisher, editor and principal author of The 100 Billionth Person.

I am sad to note that Tom Smothers, pictured above, at right, passed away December 26, 2023.  His spirit of irreverence lives on.
