Embedded Content from Other Websites

Interacting with Embedded Content

Our articles may feature content (videos, images, articles) from other sites. This content behaves just like visiting those websites directly.

These sites might gather your data, use cookies, and track your interaction, especially if logged in to their site.

Sharing Your Data

Resetting Passwords

Request a password reset, and we include your IP address in the email. This measure enhances security.

We keep comments and their metadata indefinitely. This helps us auto-approve follow-ups rather than queue them.
