I have edited some images and created ads/posters for my reviews. I do not give consent for you to use my Branding, or labour (graphic design) to promote your content, monetised or otherwise.


If you choose to comment on this website, in doing so, you give me consent and copyright to publish and edit your submitted words, and to keep them on this website indefinably.

Also, the right to publish your comment into posts elsewhere on the site, other than the page you actually posted on -In roundup posts, for example.

Comments are published at my discretion and may be deleted without warning.

Publication of a comment is not an endorsement. Some comments are automatically published if the user has commented before. As long as the comment is not offensive and does not break any laws, it will generally be considered suitable for publication. If you feel a comment should be removed, please email me at contact@oldcynic.com with details.

If you submit a comment with a rude word in the comment or the username, I will remove it where I suspect it’s possible to cause upset if/when taken out of context (as I assume your intent is not to cause upset). I will also change a phrase to ensure it won’t cause offence while retaining the meaning of the text. ~These things will only occur where I have noticed the word!

Snide or rude comments will not be published. I may not be right, but then, I don’t claim to be. I simply offer an opinion and free-to-view entertainment. If you disagree with my opinion, I’m happy to publish your constructive thoughts, but I won’t publish snide or rude comments. It’s not the vibe I want for this website and I really have no reason to tolerate it.

Promotional comments, or those which appear designed to encourage spending, will not be published. Or maybe edited before or after publication.

If your comment was edited and you’d rather it be deleted, please make contact.
