I wrote a Terms of Service. Yes, it’s true — we finally have an official document governing your relationship with this site. You can sleep soundly tonight, my friends…
I know the idea sounds silly, but some things have happened to make me think it’s a good idea to have one of these around. I was tempted to just copy and paste one from somewhere else, but that seemed pointless. I figured if I was going to subject everyone to a TOS, I was at least going to write it myself.
The result is probably pretty interesting to read. It’s basically a huge exercise in stating the obvious, but that’s was a TOS is generally isn’t it? It says what I want it to say without any lawyer-speak and without being too insulting or paranoid. I hope that in making it accessible and readable, I haven’t stripped out any of the legal force. For that matter, I hope this document has legal force to begin with.
