Yes, this is intended to be a broad, and vague policy. If this happens, think about what it is you may have posted. Were you insulting? Were you attacking any particular group, person, belief, religion, etc? Yes, yes, most likely, whatever you posted has not been made illegal. You may even scream and complain about the 1st Amendment and about how your freedom of speech matters all you like. We won’t deny that it does, even if you do get banned. Dramatic flailing over your rights is commendable and will be noted as an impressive display of rectopathy; however, it is still utterly irrelevant here.
It is not our policy to spell out what it takes to avoid consequences as if you were a five year old child. You’re an adult, presumably. Act accordingly.
Don’t be an ass.
We reserve the right, with or without warning or notification to you, to limit or deny your access to the Site or take any and and all other appropriate lawful and legal actions or remedies if you violate any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use or if you engage in any activity that violates the rights of any person or entity or which we in our sole discretion and at any time deem unlawful, illegal, inappropriate, offensive, threatening, abusive, or potentially harmful or malicious.
