    Privacy Policy & Terms of Service

    Ike has kindly offered to do what I did on Metabans, but with a little more care (He, unlike me, might actually read it)

    Re-purpose the privacy policy from http://automattic.com/privacy/ and the terms of service at http://en.wordpress.com/tos/
    I started at DICE late Oct. 2014, so ignore every post before that.

    Bloodthirsty License Agreement
    ------------------------------

    This is where the bloodthirsty license agreement is supposed to go,
    explaining that Interactive Easyflow is a copyrighted package licensed
    for use by a single person, and sternly warning you not to pirate
    copies of it and explaining, in detail, the gory consequences if you
    do.

    We know that you are an honest person, and are not going to go around
    pirating copies of Interactive Easyflow; this is just as well with us
    since we worked hard to perfect it and selling copies of it is our only
    method of making anything out of all the hard work.

    If, on the other hand, you are one of those few people who do go around
    pirating copies of software you probably aren't going to pay much
    attention to a license agreement, bloodthirsty or not. Just keep your
    doors locked and look out for the HavenTree attack shark.

    Honest Disclaimer
    -----------------

    We don't claim Interactive Easyflow is good for anything -- if you
    think it is, great, but it's up to you to decide. If Interactive
    Easyflow doesn't work: tough. If you lose a million because
    Interactive Easyflow messes up, it's you that's out the million, not
    us. If you don't like this disclaimer: tough. We reserve the right to
    do the absolute minimum provided by law, up to and including nothing.

    This is basically the same disclaimer that comes with all software
    packages, but ours is in plain English and theirs is in legalese.

    We didn't really want to include any disclaimer at all, but our lawyers
    insisted. We tried to ignore them but they threatened us with the
    attack shark (see license agreement above) at which point we relented.

    Ike told me he loves the legalese stuff though. I'd be happy with those paragraphs leibhold. Just something explaining that I'll be doing what every other damn website is doing because that's how the internet works.

    If only that were true. General Mills caused a recent stir when they changed their T&C to say that downloading a coupon for $0.50 off a box of cereal would cost you your right to sue them in court. On the bright side, the outrage was so intense that they've backed down.

    Don't send me private messages (PMs) unless you really need privacy, like your game server password. If you just have a question or need help, post in one of the threads. It's extra work for me to answer questions and give help in private messages and no one else gets the benefit of the answer.
