Terms of Service and Legal Disclaimers
Here's the necessary legal disclaimers and other information - please feel free to discuss ANY concerns you have about these terms of service with me! I'll be happy to explain why I post this up. It's partly to protect you, because when I post this copyright disclaimer, if anyone else takes something you write off of a message board at the site, and tries to post it somewhere else, or use it in any other manner, I can legally stop them from doing this and displaying what you wrote, and I can prosecute them for taking our thoughts and messages and reproducing them anywhere else.
