Thank you for visiting my site. Please read these Terms of Use – which include a Copyright Notice, Comments Policy and Privacy Policy – carefully as any use of this website constitutes acceptance of these Terms.

Throughout this site, the terms “I” and “my” refer to Un-Boxed Brain (“Website”) operated by Cas Faulds.

Comments Policy

Comments made on this website are moderated according to the following policy.

  1. All comments are moderated. This means that your comment will not be published until I have had the opportunity to review it to ensure that it does not violate this comments policy.
  2. I do not moderate comments on a daily basis, but I do tend to check on a weekly basis. This means that your comment might take a week to be published depending on when you commented.
  3. In order for your comment to be published it must meet the standards of basic human decency. You can do this by ensuring that your comment doesn’t contain pathologising language regarding any form of neurodivergence, and is free from any other form of oppressive language (ableist, racist, sexist, etc. comments will be deleted).
  4. If your comment is long, please try to include sufficient paragraph breaks so that they are accessible to me. If I cannot read your comment, I cannot publish it.
  5. While this may seem limiting, I do appreciate it when people take the time to comment and I will generally reply to comments which are made in the spirit of continuing a discussion. For your convenience, I have set up a way in which you can be notified by email should your comment receive a reply. This will save you the time of checking the Website to see if your comment has been published.
