Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: There’s only one of us at least messing with this blog, although there’s up to 5 people that might fool around on the back end for lols.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Strangeness Blog uses akismet or whatever the fuck it’s called for spam detection, not counting other capatcha services that work when the server admin has time.

Access logs are maintained on this server, and the admin doesn’t care about looking at them unless somebody was naughty. This page is solely on this instance to comply with GDPR and California USA privacy laws.


If you upload images into the comments section, you should practice common sense and avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Some people with no lives might take that and dox you if you’re saying something taboo or dumb. There are free services to remove that information if you are technologically lazy.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for up to one year or whenever the admins of this site decide to blow away all current sessions because they feel like it..

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, if we decide to give you an account, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last up to a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites might be total assholes and collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. We will try and remove as much of that nonsense as we can, but some companies whose names rhyme with Doogle might shove it back up the rear without our consent if things get hotlinked. This includes embedded fonts until the admins blow away any 3rd party shit that might exist on this blog software.

Who we share your data with

TLDR: We don’t share shit with anybody unless you were naughty and did something illegal in accordance with United States law, then we will make fun of you publicly.

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

TLDR: We keep metadata for comments, but we don’t care about the data and you can blow it away eventually if you wish by deleting your comments/profile. Nor do we care about looking at your data unless you broke the law.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments will be checked through an automated spam detection service. I don’t have time to filter through Indian phone scammer spam comments on a regular basis as I have a daytime job.
