in reply to Node 541

How's this (which sould be self-obvious):

I take full and sole responsibility for the content of my posts. I give full permission to vroom or any of his appointed entities to remove or edit any post of mine for any reason or no reason whatsoever without placing any responsibility to do so.

There. If we all did something like this, it wouldn't be censorship (which I oppose), but rather a favor to prevent any ill consequences of the post. It also puts the burden of any post on me, so that no legal troubles fall on the monastary through removing or not removing a post. We've grown large enough that a 'terms of use' agreement might be a good idea to protect the monastary would be a good idea. I was once told that a contract is there to protect all parties. This topic will come up again, maybe in a different format - professional slander is an easy one to imagine. Let's make sure we're covered, and move on.

I don't like censorship. I hate censorship. However, I think Corion acted completely correctly, first by watching out for the Monastary, and then, more importantly, bringing the topic up. This has more reach then just this single post, and we need to hash it out now, well before any "cease and desist" letters start flying for any reason.
