It is always assumed that users who e-mail the guru or any other member of DraftSite and who do not clearly label their e-mail as a PRIVATE MESSAGE, may have their e-mail posted as a letter to the editor, discussed on our podcast, or any other form of content that we deem suitable. DraftSite specifically disclaims any liability with regard to e-mail not clearly labeled as unsuitable for a Letters to the Editor column by the user or e-mail intended for Letters to the Editor and any actions resulting from your participation in Letters to the Editor.
In addition, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (i.e., user name, e-mail address) in Letters to the Editor, podcast, or any other form of content, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user's communication, can be collected, correlated, and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of DraftSite.
