BeDiesel.com Blog, Article, Tools, Q&A, Forum, and Guest Post Content Disclaimer
This disclaimer applies to all Content in the BeDiesel.com Blog, along with guest posts, Q&A, and any other areas where users can submit Content.
BeDiesel.com provides information, advice, and content based on our personal and professional experience. This content is, by-and-large, opinion, and although we do our best to limit false or misleading information, the practices of bodybuilding and online marketing are rarely an exact science and your results applying this information may vary.
The BeDiesel.com Blog, Q&A, and guest posts are comprised of content from multiple authors; some are employees of BeDiesel.com and others are guest bloggers or BeDiesel.com community members like you.
BeDiesel.com reviews all non-comment Content on the BeDiesel.com Blog and guest posts, but not Q&A or forums. We try to err on the side of publishing “too much” rather than “too little” material, and thus, you may find content that is heavily opinionated or even dead wrong at times. It’s our opinion that it’s valuable to be exposed to Content and perspectives of all kinds, even if it’s not 100% accurate. Even bad ideas can bear useful fruit. Thus, we’re generally liberal with the BeDiesel.com Blog, guest posts, and Q&A and forums. Please remember to always use your best judgment when making decisions about how to imploy your own bodybuilding regimen.
Our Q&A service is mostly run through community volunteers and users like you. Please be mindful that we don’t review every question and answer. In fact, we can’t guarantee that you will receive an answer at all. You’re going to get all kinds of answers—good and bad—in Q&A. Use your independent judgment.
If you have concerns, comments, or problems with any of the material you find on the BeDiesel.com Blog or our site, please feel free to contact us.
Hopefully, this is the only “corporate-esque” style content you’ll find on the site! We’re generally against legalese and formalized policies, but sometimes we have to get down to business. Thanks for your understanding!
