Black Diamond Ranch is primarily a top-ranked "golfing community" located in Lecanto, Florida.  But, while this website does contain information related to Black Diamond Ranch and it's related golf club, it is NOT intended or limited to presenting discussion, news, opinions, cartoons & parody, and/or any other information about any one particular place or matter. The website is open to anyone and everyone (except the forum).

Hi !    You have reached a privately owned and independently run website where some Black Diamond Ranch related residents and ex-residents communicate among themselves, and with the public in general about a whole variety of matters, including many NOT related to the community and/or, related golf club. This website is not in any way endorsed, sponsored by, or affiliated with that portion of the community know as Black Diamond Ranch, or the facilities portion of an entity known as the Black Diamond Country Club, which are wholly owned by Black Diamond Properties, Inc. and under their related trademarks. While the owner of this website is a shareholder of Black Diamond Club, Inc, this site is not endorsed, sponsored by, or affiliated with, Black Diamond Club, Inc., when taken as a whole. All opinions expressed by the website owner are those of his own only, and not that of  Black Diamond Club, Inc., taken as a whole. The website owner does not speak for, or on behalf of,  Black Diamond Club, Inc. (taken as a whole) in any way.

While the forum/blog is now private, mainly because of certain legal issues, one can e-mail me asking for special invitation to enter this treasure of primarily resident and member based opinions.

By clicking the link below I acknowledge that I have read and understand the disclaimer at the top of this page.  I also agree to click the link to the website Rules and/or Disclaimer page, and to read, understand, follow, and abide by these rules at all times  I also agree to click the link to the website Policies, Disclosures, and Other Disclaimers, and then to read, understand, follow, and be knowledgeable about all of these provisions (on both sections), and act responsibly to and for all of their content, while holding the website harmless for any actions he may make/take in the method that he chooses to run this web site. Lack of these rules and understandings is not an excuse,

I also agree that is is my responsibility to know the content of the current Rules and Policy pages, which are subject to change at any time. I also agree to follow those rules at all times,  I am aware that I also can easily get to those pages by clicking the appropriate links on the "Home" page.

I understand "spam" by outsiders and other unauthorized materials from "local" users may be posted in the forum and that it may contain material which is objectionable to some people. I agree to hold the website administrator harmless in all cases with respect to this, which is always beyond his control.

I agree an acknowledge that the existence of any real club, any valid club purchase agreement, or any real equity(ies) is a matter under dispute in the local and federal courts at this time and use of terms related to this matter by myself are for "talking points only", and do not set a precedence of meaning or interpretation as it relates to this matter. I agree and understand that my use of these terms are not an acknowledgement on my part that these things actually exist unless otherwise specifically stated as such and with that obvious intent on that subject alone. This also applies to the website administrator,

I agree that I must do my own due diligence as it pertains to any and all matters which I encounter and/or read about on this website. I acknowledge that all material found on this website may or may not be factual, including those things stated in writing by the website owner. I realize that any and all written content by the website owner may at times be used and intended to generate diverse discourse of differing and opposing opinions in the forum, not necessarily present real or actual opinions and facts of the owner himself.  I acknowledge that news stories, documents, articles, opinions & stated future intentions of the website administrator (and/or his wife), and/or all other matters found on this website are subject to changes, corrections, withdrawals, and/or outright retractions at any time now or in the future at the sole discretion of the website administrator and without special notification to me. As a result of this, I agree that any matters, actions, and/or decisions which I make subsequent to visiting this website are mine alone, and the responsibility for doing my own due diligence on all these matters to which I may later react, lies solely and fully with me.

I agree that as a user and/or viewer of this website, if any content whatsoever is found to be in error or untrue in any way, or in any source or story, that affects anything related to me personally or my business/corp. in what I believe to be a negative way, or especially what I think is a legal violation, I will first notify the website administrator in a timely manner by certified letter (for my protection) asking for a mutually agreeable public correction, retraction, and/or clarification,  and then further hold the website administrator harmless when my request is so performed by him in a timely manner. E-mail or phone may also be used by myself but at the website administrator's subsequent sole discretion for this purpose if importance dictates that to me, and/or to obtain his correct mailing address or phone number. That e-mail address is located on the home page of this website. In short,  I agree to not take any actions what-so-ever for mistakes or legal violations on this website without first giving the website administrator a chance to rectify them in a mutually agreeable manner on this website alone.

I agree that using the "Favorites" feature of my browser is a choice which  I alone make, and does not in any way alleviate me from reading & knowing, acknowledging, and abiding by the contents of all of the introductory, disclaimer, policy, and rules pages on this website just the same as if I had viewed and "clicked" on them in order to have a right to proceed.  I agree to hold the Administrator harmless, for my use of this feature and the resultant ignorance to myself which this practice so creates.

I agree that the website administrator at his sole discretion may make minor corrections and changes to any message which I may post in the forums as log as they do not change my intended meaning. I am aware and also agree that manual IP address changes are sometimes needed and done for anonymity security purposes on those type of messages (only) by the website administrator. And I also understand and agree to, that deceptive types of messages posted, of which are determined solely by the website administrator, and of which have a significant impact on community elections and other very important matters, may result in the real names of the message poster being revealed by the website administrator in the forum and/or other website locations, which originated from anonymously posted IP addresses.

All the terms, conditions, & statements above I agree with, have knowledge of, and agree to abide by. I acknowledge that I am aware of the fact that this website is NOT limited to news, opinions, cartoons & parody, articles, and/or any other information in general about Black Diamond Ranch or it's related golf club alone. I am further aware that the intent of this website is not limited to "Black Diamond Ranch" matters only, but is intended by the very existence of  it's lavish use of diverse non-related content (relative to that community) as a place for a much wider variety of public attraction and appeal.  I realize that the forum is a common blog, and therefore all content including that provided by the website owner is to be taken as something subject to my own verification alone before conclusion to myself as fact.

I fully understand that a website and it's forum in particular is THE new mainstream news, debate, and opinion distribution media of choice for many to even most people today. And as such, the website administrator, as the website owner and it's sole direct promoter of this open discussion media center may state the opinions of others which are contrary to his own privately held opinions on the same matter, but solely as a means of generating, creating, and encouraging a spirited debate from both sides of/on any particular issue. I understand and acknowledge this may be done without any warning or disclaimer to the contrary by the website owner. I fully understand and acknowledge that this is not a personal misrepresentation (a.k.a., lie or deception) by the website owner at any time, but rather a deliberate and overt act to encourage and even provoke in some cases both sides of any particular issue to be openly discussed on an expanded and broader scale, and especially when viewer interest in the forum, or an important issue, is in a waning trend or period as determined solely by the website administrator (owner).

I agree, that because of the longevity and long-time actual use and practice experience related to any and all rhetoric used by the the website administrator on this website (now in excess of 5 years full time), that by using and particularly reading any and all content on this website, and the forum in particular, I am acknowledging that the owner/administrator qualifies to me as a true journalist, with all legal rights so afforded that position. Without this agreement as it relates to acknowledged journalism expertise on my part, I agree to exit immediately and not view or expose myself to any content.

I acknowledge and understand that this website and it's included forum does not purport to be a significant communications conduit to any particular unique group of people in part or as a whole.

                                            [ Yes, I acknowledge and understand the above ]

 

I do not want to proceed, or I do not agree with all of the above, or I do not want to read and understand all of the above, or I do not want to abide by all of the above. This is not for me.

                                 [ Get me out of here ! ]
