Publishing, posting, distributing, or disseminating any defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent or unlawful material or information.

Falsifying the origin or source of any material contained in a file that is uploaded.

Knowingly introducing viruses, corrupted files or any other similar software or programs that may damage, alter or destroy this web site or the operation of another's computer system, network, software, program, documentation or data contained therein.

The author reserves the right to remove any contents of this web site received from users for violations of the author's forum use policies and other applicable regulations and law, including violations of others' constitutional rights. The author reserves the right to edit any notices or postings for length if and when such length interferes with other users' access to and use of this forum.

The Internet user acknowledges that chats, conferences, bulletin boards, discussion webs and any other such interactive or communications' forums hosted by this web site are public and not private communications. Further, the Internet user acknowledges that chats, posting conferences, discussion webs and other communications by other Internet users are not endorsed by the author, and such communications shall not be considered reviewed, screened, or approved by the author.

SEVERABILITY:

If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitation set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect.

CLOSING OF AGREEMENT:

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Internet user and the author with respect to this web site and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between the Internet user and the author with respect to this web site. This Agreement shall be deemed to include all other notices, policies, disclaimers and other terms contained in this web site; provided, however, that in the event of a conflict between such other terms and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
