Who I AM

I am Tim. My website address is: https://www.fiveupfront.com/


When visitors leave comments on the site, the WordPress installation collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. If using the comments form, messages can be left pretty anonymously. If people want to comment regularly on individual posts, they will be invited to fill in additional information, which may be remembered for their convenience upon returning.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website. I don’t think you can upload images, but it is probably worth mentioning.

Embedded content from other websites

Posts 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 may 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.

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Basically, as I understand it, you get a reputation with the bots as being a “real person”. But it is way above my pay grade.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments will be checked through an automated spam detection service. ReCaptcha V3 also tries to make sure the overall comment form is being used by actual humans. I do not know exactly how it works. It may be goblins. I have a theory, it might be bunnies.


I have no interest in you and/or who you are, unless you want to share that with me. Assuming, of course, you are playing nicely.
