Terms of Service

The Gist:

We (the folks at Jeremy Homan) run this site and would love for you to use it. This site, blog, forum, and related services are designed to educate and entertain, and we encourage you to express yourself freely.  However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your website.

That’s pretty much it.  A big thank you goes out to the folks at Automattic (the people behind WordPress.com), have made their Terms of Service available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, meaning you can borrow some or all of their wording for your own Terms of Service — which is exactly what we did.
