Just saw this:
The US requires full disclosure in blogs, review postings and comment postings if the writer has received compensation, including free products. Failure to fully disclose can result in fines up to $11,000 per posting.
So, I will declare now that NO ONE IS PAYING ME BUBKES TO WRITE THIS BLOG.
My ramblings are uncompensated.
Though, if someone wants to compensate me, I will forward the details of where and how to leave the money.
