Special Consideration - To Black
Diamond Owners, Employees, and Related Attorneys
This website has in the past and continues
to operate with a policy that does not require any registration in order to post
messages in the forum(s). This makes message posting an option for any person in
the world, and so one can easily sign his or her real name at the end of the
posted message in order to specifically identify themselves and their
title/status. This includes you ! So if you
are going to read the content on this web site, you are free to comment,
correct, and/or dispute any content posted on this web site through the use of
the open forum system just like everyone else.
No registration is required. Should such a
forum message be posted by any owner, employee, or related attorney, who also
identifies his/her status as such in the message, this website
administrator will headline that message on the front page of this web site in
all cases, and he will also provide a direct "link" (example -
"Press Here To Read Message".) from that related
front page headline article to that specific posted forum message.
This in effect opens this web site up 100
percent to the point of view of those named in the title above, and also further
provides for a degree of special emphasis not afforded to most others.
Further, since your message will be posted
in open forum, this allows others to respond and/or post a public correction or
retraction if required.
Further, since a motion has been filed and
approved by the attorneys for the defendants requiring that matters related to
current litigation not be discussed by the website administrator, Robert Thune,
and because the defendants and their attorneys are on record of using and
frequenting this website on their own, they are to be treated like any
other visitor to the website and abide by the rules. That being said:
One special rule is
that if any material is posted by the website administrator (Robert Thune),
where they (the defendants or their attorneys) believe that this information or
content posted by the website administrator is in violation of that court order,
a court order that they sought, they are required to immediately notify Robert
Thune of their concerns either by e-mail (Link On Home page or email@example.com),
telephone (575-642-7888 or (575-571-1715), through his attorney, or by direct
mail. In all cases, and regardless of the website administrator's personal
opinions or desires, the website administrator (Robert Thune) will immediately
remove that material upon said notification, and without prejudice. This
is done because in running a website such a possibility of such a oversight
could inadvertently happen and/or exist for a variety of reasons.
Mostly that would involve a difference in interpretation
of what is included in this requirement.
in order to avoid confrontation, and be fair
on any and all court related legal issues, or any other
concerns not related to legal matters by Black Diamond Management, the website administrator
will defer to the defendants desires for removal of content
in all cases, and as those
defendants wholly (and/or their attorneys) see fit as it relates to material
posted on this website upon notification of displeasure by the defendants. This is done in order to
avoid further confusion, interpretation disputes, more litigation and
argumentation. It is the website administrators desire to only
discuss pertinent litigation in the court of law as per the defendants and/or
their attorney's complete wishes and desires as it relates to this manner.
Building a case and then pouncing without notification of displeasure by the
defendants related to any material posted on this website is not an
excuse for violating the website rules as is relates to this matter. The website administrator
just wants to continue to run his website while cooperating with the
defendants in full and on a fair basis !!!!
On this issue, the website administrator
reserves the right to remove material previously posted by himself, if on his
own, he later determines and/or concludes that this material may be to close to
what could become a difference in interpretation between the defendants or
their attorneys, and himself, relative to any court order on this issue. The
removal of this material is not to be interpreted as the previous performance of
any wrong doing. The website administrator also reserves the right to rescind
the provisions of the two paragraphs above, retroactively
(to include the latest request for removal only), if he determines, at
his sole discretion, that abuses are occurring in the quantity of requested
deletions and/or relevancy to any issues
what-so-ever as is relates to the content that this same material contains.
(This last sentence is added because of the defendants actions as they relate to
legally sealing ALL MEMBERS in total from witnessing the first local trial.)
The request for any blantant "bulk deletions" will certainly
fit into this category of "denial to delete" on the part of the Website
explicitly stated otherwise, everything written,
or expressed in any and all other forms, by my (Robert Thune's) hand or deeds in
and on this website and/or website forum, is MY opinion only
(except as sometimes disclaimed in "Administrator Appended and/or
Follow-up Comments:" section
below), and it is
only opinion, not necessarily fact. Any use of the word "comment, believe, etc."
or the like, in these rules and the website policies page is to be interpreted
as to mean "opinion only". Further, I do NOT speak
anyone else, or business, real or imagined.
I (Robert Thune) do reserve the right to
publish hearsay on this website solely as I see fit. This right does not
necessarily apply to the other website users.
The users of this website have no "rights
to equality" amongst themselves as it relates to the treatment by the website
owner (Robert Thune) in the running of this website.
Specifically, this website is NOT, or intended to be, the
official VOICE OF THE COMMUNITY including but not limited to; world wide
web readers, community residents, real estate property owners, the club
membership, and/or any Black Diamond developer owners and/or employees. It is
strictly a privately owned web-based entity which is owned and operated by
Robert H. Thune, and at his sole discretion, and on all matters. Further, the
words "Resident Based" contained in the home page title refers to Robert H.
Thune only and alone, not the Black Diamond "Residents" specifically or in
general. The website owner can treat
differing website users strictly as he sees fit and at his sole discretion. No
"equal treatment" between differing website users is expressed or implied. The
same also applies to the same user, but at differing times. Any tolerated
behavior on this website by the owner, and for any period of time, does not set
a precedence of tolerance, for subsequent actions and/or usage by the other users.
Further, the website administrator
reserves the right to change and/or correct news stories, articles, forum
messages (minor corrections), and/or
documents, at his sole discretion and without special notifications to the
readers. He likewise reserves the right to change, correct, withdraw, and/or
retract at his sole discretion any previously stated opinions and/or stated
future intentions, without special notifications to the readers.
This website is owned, operated, and
controlled by Robert Thune. It is not owned, operated, or controlled by others
or anyone else; most specifically those associated with the community known as
Black Diamond or it's owners/operators. There is no
"equality of website rights"
when using this website either practiced, expressed, or implied between the
other users of this website and the owner of this website who name is disclosed above.
That website owner has every right to practice or speak in any manner that he
sees fit at all times, and most specifically in
direct violation to the website rules set forth by
him for practice by the other website users, if he (at his sole discretion) deems that necessary
and/or desirable, and as the sole-owner of the website.
The users of this website must all
understand and agree to accept as fact where pertinent:
The administrator, Robert Thune is not an
attorney. Opinions expressed that relate to legal matters are that of a
non-attorney only. All website users should due their own due diligence on all
legal and other matters found on this website.
Also, any and all statements made on this website, it's specialty pages, or in
the forums, by Robert Thune (a non-attorney), is opinion only and without
any consultation with my attorney to date (as of11-30-08) . Any and all of
these statements, were and are extremely limited opinions and based on limited
research only because they are used
solely in the operation, maintenance, interest
generation, hit count building, reader count building, reader
simplification and understanding, and order keeping of this website.
With that in mind, any and all writings by Robert
Thune were and are NOT intended for specific legal interpretation including but
not limited to; exact word meaning interpretation, intent arguing,
"but you said" arguments, and/or legal nit picking in general.
Because of their original intent as it relates to the operation of this website alone (as listed
above), they are
thus all subject to correction, amplification, clarification, and even a complete retraction at
any time in the future by myself (Robert Thune) after consultation with my
attorney about all of the involved specifics on any matter, and at any time,
after actual litigation (defined as the start of jury trials in particular) commences.. This written material was originally
authored at a different time,
and for a different specific purpose,
when technical legal content perfection was not an issue.
The writings above and up through 11-30-08
are extended here to continue through 9-3-09 and on forward until actual jury
trials start in the courts, are likewise subject to the writings of the above
paragraph since no actual trials have begun. Until that time, (jury trials), no
actual decisions have been reached (save Summary Judgments and court rulings) so
any statements made by the website administrator (a non-attorney) are not to
taken as necessarily based on any real fact (they are opinions). The
actual facts as per attorney - client privilege remain intact.
Also, since Black Diamond management has
not been forthcoming with financial information (possibly in violation of
Florida law), or membership category counts, any opinion statements made by
Robert Thune relative to anything related to these specific matters are
based on estimates only. Let
the reader beware and do their own do diligence on the validity of this subject
matter. Most specifically, but not limited to, are matters that relate to
membership resignations and the long-term effect of those resignations on the
financial stability of the club facility (ies) operation(s) as it relates to an
"option" takeover as described in the Membership Plan.
The Membership Plan (not the term
All users of this website must
read and understand the following disclaimer.
The actual existence
(only) of a paper document called the "Membership
Plan", as part of "the Club", (Black Diamond Club, Inc.) documentation, is not
under dispute by the website administrator, Robert Thune. The document
exists! Any and all statements or comments made by the administrator in
the forums/blogs, or anywhere else on this website, about any content in that
document (the Membership Plan), reflects an opinion only of how the
document reads in a literal manner
Many matters related to this document (the
"Membership Plan"), however, and in many ways, are
under dispute in the courts at this time (12-15-08), and in particular how they
relate to the website administrator, Robert Thune. Nothing stated by the
administrator Robert Thune, in the past or in the future, and on this website,
is intended to reflect any type of
agreement or acknowledgement of validity in any manner
with what is literally stated in that document.
It is nothing more than a document authored by Stan Olsen and of questionable
status and legality.
In fact there is much legal disagreement about
this document and it's use in conjunction with the purchase of a club membership
. Under dispute, and particularly under depute by Robert Thune, is
whether or not this document was properly represented at the time of purchase,
whether it was presented before any money for purchase was accepted by Black
Diamond, whether a rush to avoid initiation fee price increases was
threatened by the Black Diamond Sales Department as a means of avoiding a
thorough investigation of this document by the purchaser, whether or not
any pre-dating of checks occurred at the request of the Black Diamond Sales
Department as a deceptive ploy to cause a rush to judgment relative to the
presentation of this document, whether the sales department was truthful
in this document's content and presentation, whether this document is actually
legal in any and all manners, whether the "option to purchase" clause in
particular was in compliance with Florida law, whether the purchase of a
membership into what was represented by the Black Diamond Sales Department as a
true "equity club" was properly presented or was misrepresented as something it
wasn't (particularly in comparison to other existing true equity clubs), whether
an eventual turnover was properly represented and explained, and/or whether or
not this document has any legal status and/or validity based on whether or not
it was written in compliance with the law in all ways and manners.
Also under dispute is the fact that Robert
Thune was sold 2 memberships that were classified by Black Diamond as "inactive"
and there was not one shred of legal documentation in this document to cover the
rules and procedures for this classification of club membership, which in effect
did not exist. This fact was later acknowledged in a letter authored by
Stan Olsen (letter available) without the offer of a refund.
Administrator Appended and/or
Administrator originated opinions appended
to the end of existing and posted forum messages, whether these messages were
posted anonymously or signed, apply only to that particular message which they
are associated with, and solely up to
or for that specific period in time alone.
Prior to the Administrator's appended opinions, these forum messages sometimes
contain derogatory remarks about others and/or other businesses usually without
any supporting evidence on the part of the original message poster.
So for this reason and others, any remark (response opinions) made by myself (the
Administrator) relative to these appended messages apply only
"until proven or seen otherwise" whether that
particular written disclaimer is added to the appended opinion by myself (the
Administrator) or not. These added appended opinions by the Administrator most
certainly do not ever apply to any point in time
after the Administrator's appended message opinion
is posted, simply because conditions can and do change (in
some cases. dramatically) !
The above paragraph also applies to
full-blown independent follow-up messages made by the Administrator, which are
in response to previously posted messages from others.
In addition to "keeping order" by acting
as the Website Administrator, the Administrator sometimes uses the
suffix "Speaking for himself." as opposed to
"Website Administrator" or "WA" when ending message opinion additions. In those
cases, he is simply delineating and/or emphasizing that this particular opinion
is not made in his role as the "order keeping" Website
Administrator in any way, but rather this opinion
is a wholly personal opinion only, aside from his role as
the "order keeping" Website Administrator.
User Conduct (paragraph 1):
The User shall use this WEB Site
for lawful purposes only. User's shall not post or transmit through any part of
this website's "system" any material which violates or infringes in any way upon
the rights of others, which is unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory,
invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, profane or otherwise
objectionable, and/or which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal
offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any law. Any conduct
by a User that in the website administrator's discretion restricts or inhibits
any other User from using or enjoying the System will not be permitted.
While the administrators and moderators of this
forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable
or copyrighted material as
quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message or know the
copyright status. Therefore you
acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express
the views, actions, and opinions of the author (aka Message poster) and not the
administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people)
and hence will not be held liable.
Further the administrators and moderators of this
forum will attempt to monitor and/or correct any misinformation,
misstatements, incorrect reports & letters, interpretations, mistakes, wrong
facts & numbers, etc. as quickly as possible, when brought to his attention.
This includes things he himself has authored.
It is a rule of this website that if, as a
user and/or viewer of this website, any content whatsoever is found to be in
error in any way that affects anything related to someone and/or his business in
what is believed to be a negative way, that person will
first notify the website administrator by certified letter asking for a
mutually agreeable public correction, retraction, apology, and/or clarification, and
then further hold the website administrator harmless when his request is so
performed by the Administrator. E-mail or phone
(575-642-7888) may also
be used by the reader, but at the website administrator's sole discretion, or to obtain the website
administrator's correct mailing address or phone number or to make those
corrections/ retractions/etc. more quickly. That e-mail address is
located on the home page of this website.
Further and also, if any reader finds any
errors to any content what-so-ever in the forum (including alleged facts), and
especially about one's self, whether made by the website administrator (Robert
Thune) or a website user, he (she) is obligated to use that same forum "thread"
to correct and/or clarify those misstatements and/or errors before taking any
legal action(s). He (she) (the offended) will then drop any legal claims once a
retraction and/or apology is made is made by the alleged offender in that same
thread. It is not just "OK" to access and read the forum, and then not make a
personal correction (as to the real facts) if an error about one's self is found
in any way, and especially in an effort to create a legal
claim. It's a blog, and by it's very nature, that allows for the
posting of content whether pro-active, reactive, or
corrective, and is especially required if
the "offended" has posted messages previously in the forum. It is not
"just OK" to allow one (the offender) to "hang out to dry" (the offender) for
legal ramifications through the use of "blog silence" (by the offended) by
deliberately remaining silent to a correction action and/or public apology by
The website administrator reserves the right
to make minor corrections to messages posted in the forums at his sole
discretion. These correction are not intended to change the original
meaning in any way.
You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful,
threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any
applicable laws, especially including copyrighted
material. Further, all message posts must be done in a respectful and
gentlemanly manner. Messages that include rhetoric which discusses or
implies innuendo about the demise of anyone is expressly prohibited.
While the Administrator's intent is to keep
and maintain anonymity in the forum, under certain conditions,
and at the website Administrator's sole discretion,
certain real names of message posters may be revealed to the public. This
clause is intended for those message posters that violate website rules and/or,
intimidate the website Administrator, use derogatory terms aimed at anyone, and
make message posts under false pretenses (multiple posts under different names).
Since the website Administrator has no other way of stopping this unwanted
activity by certain persons hiding under a promise of anonymity, public
revelation of those engaging in those unwanted practices is the only alternative
the website administrator has to end this abuse and reconstruct civility and
order to the website.
respect to copyrighted material, any message poster is responsible to
check to see if the material which they are posting is copyrighted prior to
posting it on this website. Forum posters shall take full responsibility
for these posts, while holding the website holder harmless, and this
responsibility may include a full investigation of the message poster's
identity, and/or the payment of any and all financial loss suffered by the
webmaster as a result of this action..
All posters in the forums must acknowledge
that there is an existing class action lawsuit (now modified to Individual
plaintiffs under one action) that disputes the real existence
of any club related to Black Diamond. Any use in this website (including
any postings in the forums) of any terms what-so-ever that refer to anything
related to golf, or a golf club/club, and/or a member/membership (including
dues, fees, and charges), or anything else related to this matter, are for
talking points only, and do not acknowledge that any real things related to this
matter may not actually exist in any and all content on this website,
including content they post. This matter is
in dispute under a certified class action lawsuit (as modified) at this time.
administrator reserves the right to purge the forums from time to time in whole
or in part for any reason, and without notification, disclosure, or warning.
This is done for both security and maintenance reasons. Further, any forum
message posting(s) that are deemed to contain material that is thought to
contain information the would be categorized as "Attorney/Client privilege",
"conflict of interests", or contains very specific written inclusions of a
specific legal concern that is not in the best interest of either side, for any
existing lawsuit(s), will be removed upon written request of responsible parties
and/or attorneys involved. Requests of this nature must state a complete,
different, and specific reason, for each and every message removal, in order to
be considered for removal. Further each individual message request must be made
with a single U.S. Mail "registered" letter (e-mails are not accepted).
Multiple message removal requests in one envelope or letter will not be honored.
The administrator also reserves the right to demand that requests from
non-attorney personnel also include a written request (with the same rules as
stated above) from the an attorney involved in that lawsuit, with the reasons
for removal so stated. Requests that demand bulk removals for generic
and/or the same repeated reason (I.E. - all these message are not in my (our)
best interest) will not be honored. The administrator reserves the right
to accept individual e-mails on this matter at his sole discretion alone.
Any attempt to discredit the messages posted by the
Administrator, for any reason, is not allowed. Any criticism of corrective edits
performed by the Administrator for the purpose of "rules compliance" is not
allowed. Further, any criticism of corrective actions, of any type, taken
by the website Administrator for the purpose putting an end to rules violations,
is not allowed. (This most specifically includes the use of user banning
software when this occurs). Doing any of the above may lead to you being immediately and permanently
banned from this website. Attacks on or toward the Administrator for any reason and at
any time are not allowed.You agree
most specifically, that the
rules of this website as they apply for message attacks directed toward the
website administrator are for him alone, and they are put in place primarily to
help keep order on this website. You agree that for this reason they do
not necessarily apply to
everyone else, or equally. You agree that the
webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to
remove, edit, move or close any topic for any reason and at any time should they see fit. And
and all messages that call for the cessation of this website in any way of form
will be immediately deleted without further cause, and that message poster may
be banned from this website at the sole discretion of the website administrator.
Users of the forum are required to speak for
themselves only, not others. This rule specifically does
not apply to the website administrator, who also, as a matter of fact,
personally owns the website. If this is unacceptable to you, you are asked
to not use or read the forum material and/or put up your own website.
user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a
database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party
without your consent, the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be
held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being
As it relates to anonymous message content
only, or the desire for same, (no real name involved).... Let it be known that the administrator
reserves the right to perform certain operations on existing and new messages
which result in certain IP addresses which are changed, inter-transferred and
scrambled. Let it furthe be know, that the website administrator
does retain certain of the rights afforded to everyone who posts messages in the
forum in that he may choose to post his own personal messages anonymously if he
so desires. Once these operations are performed, these messages do not represent
any semblance or connection to the original person who posted them in the first
place even though an IP address may show up at some level under intensive
investigation of hex code from the service provider. This is actually done by
the website administrator for security purposes only, and the actual content of
the message is never changed in any way, only the IP address. This
operation is performed to assure that the posts remain anonymous (as promised)
at all times should a court order be issued for detailed database information.
No record is kept of these changes to further insure complete anonymity, and it
is done randomly. Further, let it be known that the Administrator
even further scrambles a portion of the messages by copying them to an off-site
location, deletes the original postings, and them reposts this copy under his
own IP address. This could and does result in a large number of recorded
message posts under the site administrators IP address, which were not authored
or originated by the Administrator. Again this is done to further
scramble the messages for security purposes, as it relates to the issue of
anonymity and any possible IP "connection" stamps. It also provides a
safety net for the administrator's personal messages that he may post as an
anonymous source (a right he also has as a property owner of Black Diamond). Further,
the website administrator sometimes posts messages (under his IP address) which
are e-mailed to him with requests from the author to remain anonymous.
After posting by the administrator, those e-mails are all destroyed (usually at
the request of the author). In short,
an IP stamp found with any posted message does not necessarily represent the IP
address of the original poster/author (including the website
administrator), and in a unrecorded number of random cases,
the IP address definitely has been changed.
The result of all this is that an anonymous source can
never be proven to have actually made any given post even though some IP address
may at some level be found to be linked to a given message. Simply put, it may
be (and very likely is) a phony or incorrect IP address that resulted from these
"Favorites" feature of a browser is a choice made by the end user in
his/her computer which is
beyond the control of this Administrator. A rule of this
website is that it not be used at any time. Also, a rule of this website is that
a violation of this rule does not in any way alleviate the users from reading & knowing,
acknowledging, and abiding by the contents of all of the
disclaimer pages on this website just the same as if they had viewed and
"clicked" on them in order to proceed. A choice to circumvent
the page view requirements of this website, using the favorites feature in a
browser, to access the Stanleyville Jokes page(s), without going through the
acknowledgement disclaimer, is a very strict violation of website rules.
Users of this website, must acknowledge that any
Ignorance, and/or any and all avoidance, of the disclaimer pages,
and it's required acknowledgements, is no excuse.
The website administrator also changes the internal links (webpage names) from
time to force adherence thru the disclaimer pages. As a result, no one can
claim they did not go thru these pages to get to any given area of the website.
Important point - Some jokes and parody
may pertain to real issues within Black Diamond, and the Website Administrator
reserves the right to post that material outside of the totally fictitious
Stanleyville section, of and on this website. When he does this, he may
also then specifically refer to "jokes" and "cartoons" when dealing with matters
on the website and forum that are real, but are not in any way part of the
totally fictitious Stanleyville material. Any written or verbal references
by the Website Administrator (whether in non-website related personal
communications, or website related matters), to these real world jokes, etc.,
which will be about real world persons, groups, or things, only reference that
parody material posted outside the fictitious Stanleyville section and are not
to be construed that real world matters are ever placed in the totally
fictitious Stanleyville section of the website. They
are not intermixed, ever, as to avoid confusion on this issue. Real world
parody is placed outside the Stanleyville section, while fictitious parody goes
inside the Stanleyville section of this website.
Chick(s) Of The Day (added 6-4-09), and parody
From time to time, modified and/or edited
photographs appear in or on this web site, and in any location. These
photographs are to be treated as parody only and
are intended for entertainment and/or web traffic building purposes alone.
These edited photos are produced as a modern
day and computer generated equivalent of the simple cartoon/joke (only).
These particular photo cartoons however, are unlike the completely unrelated (to
Black Diamond) Stanleyville cartoons and jokes which are
only posted in that particular section of this web site.
Any particular photographic
depictions/cartoons/jokes when posted in a place other than the Stanleyville
section and/or under any web page displayed heading "Chick(s)
Of The Day", do represent, when shown, parody
alone, in particular, and at all times. And these particular
photo-cartoons may or may not at times and in some cases be directly related to Black
Diamond and it's related matters.
And, in all cases,
these "photographic cartoons" posted under the heading
"Chick(s) Of The Day", represent absolutely
nothing of fact what-so-ever, including the characters themselves, which are
head and body fabrications commonly knows as "fakes" in the cyberspace world.
Remember, a cartoon is funny because it "rings
of truth" in the eye of any user/ viewer only. That "ring of truth" is a
perception of the viewer alone, and not necessarily based on any particular real
A rule of this web site is that the users of
this web site understand the content and intents at humor as spelled out
in this 6 paragraph section, and treat it accordingly and as such. Those photo's
represent non-factual humor and/or parody only !
Any relationship to real
persons or events for material found in the Stanleyville cartoon section is
Other Issues Continued...
A rule of this website is that you understand that the
rules and disclaimer pages may be upgraded and changed at any time, and that it is your
responsibility to know what they are and/or what they contain, each time you click into this website
through it's opening page disclaimer/information provider. Just like the law in
the U.S., lack of knowledge of these website rules and disclaimer page(s)
content is no excuse.
Use of this website at any time without
reading and understanding the current rules,
policies, and disclaimer pages is not allowed.
Also These Rules Are Added:
- Message posters must use some form of the
phrase, "in my opinion" when making statements
that are (or have) not absolutely been proven to have a
factual basis. Expressing your opinions
is a first amendment right ! There is no such thing as a false
- The use of "Flooding" is not tolerated at
any time. Flooding is defined as rapid message posts to corrupt the
system, or rapidly re-reading message posts to "up the read counter" for
personal opinion influence gains. Any person that "floods" will be
permanently banned from the forums.
- Never copy the contents of personal
e-mails of others into this forum. This is a violation of that person's privacy !
There is an exception that allows the posting of
e-mails or letters that were mailed or e-mailed in a "mass" or "large group"
form and/or are thus general public information anyway.
- Never post any "Black Diamond"
Trademarks ! While anyone else in the whole world would welcome this
for free advertising purposes, this Developer uses this to sue whoever he
desires. He recently "settled" on one just such case.
- The posting of any false or defamatory
statements (without a proper disclaimer) is strictly prohibited !
If you cannot agree and comply with the rules
and statements, as presented above, you are asked to leave this website
