Resource Suggestion:

Welcome to Gonzo's Garage. While I always strive to provide meaningful content for my readers, I often rely on visitors to suggest links, topics, and other worthwhile content for my website, particularly when it comes to resources for the Veteran's Resources page.  If you have a link to a resource that you would like to suggest, please abide by these simple rules.  If your link meets these requirements, go ahead and send me an email using the link below.  Address each of the bullet points below in your request (you can simply copy and paste them into the email and then provide answers). I will review your suggestion as soon as possible, and get back to you with further questions or concerns.  If you send me a suggestion and it is clear that you have not read the information below, I will repeat these questions in my first reply email.  You MUST answer in order to be considered.  If you still do not answer the questions, your resource suggestion will be ignored and I will not reply further.  I appreciate your resource suggestions and willingness to reach out, but I also protect my readers (and my reputation) from questionable content and associations to the extent possible. 


  • Provide a plain URL that is easy to tell what the link is and where it goes.

  • Tell me what the resource at that link is, how it relates to the content on Gonzo's Garage, and what my readers will get from the content there.

  • Tell me whether or not you will provide a reciprocal link to my page, and if not, tell me why not.

  • Certify by stating whether or not the suggested link(s) is/are to pages or websites that themselves actually have something to do with the topic for which you are suggesting. 

  • Certify by stating that you are NOT providing suggestions to links hidden inside of other obfuscated URLs.  That is dishonest, and I consider it a security risk.  I will not subject my readers to that nonsense.

  • Certify by stating that you are NOT sending me a suggestion to a malicious site, or a site that advocates violence or harm to others, or the overthrow of the government of the United States.

  • Certify by stating that you are NOT sending me links to websites outside of the United States. 

  • Certify by stating that you are NOT sending me links that includes any obscene or questionable language in the URL itself or any obscene content or advocating of any illegal activities within the website.


Some Further Notes:

  • I will check your resource!  I am a cyber-security analyst, in case you haven't picked up on that by now.  If you send me a recommendation and it turns out to be a malicious site, I will report it to VirusTotal, the SANS Internet Storm Center, and a few other choice security sites.  I will also forward the URL for evaluation and content category blocking by the various firewall manufacturers such as CheckPoint and Cisco so that they can update their clients' blocking signatures.

  • If you send me a malicious link or to a website that advocates violence, illegal activity, child pornography, or any physical/virtual attack on the citizens of the United States, I will report you to the FBI.

  • Putting content on a site such as "Wikibuy" or a mattress store just  to get the site ranked by adding unconnected content will earn your suggestion email an express ticket to the trash folder and your email address blocked.

  • With very few exceptions, I will allow links to sites in the United Kingdom and Australia.  Very few exceptions will be allowed.  But links to places such as North Korea, Ukraine, Russia, China, Iran, and the whole myriad of bad actor states will be disallowed.

  • I reserve the right to deny a request to post your resource on my website for any reason.  I also reserve the right to remove a link for any reason.  I edit this site frequently and perform housekeeping and design changes that may result in your resource no longer being relevant to this website.  It is up to you to ensure that if a link is removed that you resubmit for consideration.


Do you agree to the above?  If so, send it!
