This includes text, graphics, images, postings to message boards, chat, and anything else. You may browse as much as you want; we hope you do. You also may download one copy of any content on this site for your non-commercial, personal use only, as long as you leave intact any copyright notices and other notices or symbols (like ©, ® or ™) that appear.

This means that although we try to provide only accurate, complete, and current information, we have to rely on third-party sources, and we don’t have the resources to check their facts. So we make no claims or representations as to the accuracy, completeness, or truth of any information contained anywhere on the site, and we don’t promise you that such information doesn’t violate anyone’s rights (although we believe and hope that it doesn’t).
We also don’t promise you that the functions contained in any materials on the site will be free of errors, that defects will be corrected, or that this site or the server that makes this site available are free from viruses. Certainly we try hard to keep the front end and the back end running smoothly.
