1st Revision: 14 August 2009, 09.18pm
2nd Revision: 22nd November 2009, 3.00pm
- Clause 2(c) changed - With this modified clause, its control and how it's applied to posts and members associated with it are now relaxed. This lets users include textual references to material deemed copyright infringing by the authorities - but only for what the moderators here define as "legitimate activities" such as being informative or to educate others on its inner workings. Materials like this however is thus still subject to scrutiny and/or approval.
