This disclaimer policy for the site nikhilbhalla.wordpress.com is valid from January 1, 2012.

Blog content

Some of the technical posts on this website/blog can tend to be non-original and can borrow directly from different sources (of course not without crediting those sources at the end of the blog post). For instance, some posts may have portions of documentation from a technology website posted directly on this blog.

Such borrowing may not be construed as plagiarism as I am not claiming that the borrowed content is my own (and as mentioned before, am and will credit any such sources). Also, there are reasons why I have continued with such borrowing of portions of content from other websites into this blog.

Firstmost, such borrowing eliminates any misinterpretation that might arise out of the re-wording of any original content borrowed from external websites to this blog, that would have to be done so as to avoid plagiarism in the first place.

Also, though hyperlinks are used on this blog to point to original sources whenever feasible, some technical posts can include content directly borrowed from other web sites for the sole reason of maintaining the continuity and flow of content in such posts on this blog. For instance, hyperlinks to external pages that are aimed at getting readers to focus only on certain sections of those pages can sometimes get them confused and out-of-context after they are exposed to those hyperlinked external pages in their entirety.

Linking to external URLs sometimes makes readers search for specific sections in those pages that you may want them to view in the context of your blog post

Efforts are on to mitigate the direct inclusion of external content in this blog. Until then, if you have any issues with the content, you can contact me at [email protected].


Written content, images and other media sourced from external sources are given due credit wherever possible/necessary.

Comments policy

  • Don’t use keywords in your comment form name – use your name, blog title, or a pseudonym that resembles a name you want to be known as.
  • Don’t stuff your comment signature (which is unnecessary – use the form) with links and qualifications on what kind of an expert you think you are. Let your comment speak for your expertise.
  • Don’t leave time waster comment nonsense like “Cool”, “I like your article”, “You make a good point”, “I need this”, and “This is great.”
  • Don’t leave long link addresses that deteriorate the web page design. Put them in an HTML anchor tag with descriptive text that tells the reader where the link is going and what it is about.
  • Don’t attack the blogger(s) nor other commenters. Attack the content if you have to attack, not the person.
