Hey, we don’t own other’s sites, so we’re not liable for them. Easy. If you find us via another site or link to another site through us, great! But don’t expect us to be responsible for ANYTHING regarding those other sites. Not our job, mon. Oh, and just because we linked to a site, doesn’t mean we endorse that site. It’s just a link on the information highway. You wouldn’t sue Iowa for putting in an exit ramp that led to a bad taco stand. Same-same here.
General rule of thumb: if you don’t own it, don’t post it; if it’s mean or nasty, don’t post it; if it’s illegal, don’t post it. You get it. But if you don’t, then keep reading.
