You only need a lawyer because of the actions of another lawyer, and no matter what happens, two lawyers get paid.

CODE OF CONDUCT

By accessing this website, you agree to be bound by this Code of Conduct. And yeah, we’re serious about this part.

You are expected to maintain a certain level of decorum and maturity while using this website. Though intended for teenagers and older, we nonetheless want to keep everything family-friendly. Therefore, we require that while using our website, you:

  • above all else, treat others with respect
  • comply with moderators’ and administrators’ instructions with regard to site usage
  • do not threaten, harass or attack others on our website
  • do not excessively use profanity

  • do not post sexually explicit content

  • do not post personal information about others without their consent
  • do not attempt to play “rules lawyer” with us

The administrators will be the sole judges of what does and does not comply with the above.

Furthermore:

  • We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Site bans will be handed out with carefree abandon.
  • You agree that the laws of the County of Santa Clara in the State of California, in the United States, shall govern the usage of this site and that all legal proceedings regarding this website shall be held in Santa Clara County, California.
  • You agree that in no event shall damages collected by you from us for any reason exceed the amount of money paid to us by you. Yep, that means zero.
  • You recognize that the administrators of this website can view all information posted to it. For the purposes of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, this website and its associated messaging and email services are not to be considered a secure communications medium. While we will make all reasonable efforts to keep this site secure, we do not guarantee that a security breach will not occur, or that any information posted to this site will remain secure. See our Privacy Policy below for further details.
  • Copyright compliance inquiries (DMCA) can be sent to policy[@]manliestbrony.com (remove the square brackets). Please note that only the copyright holder has legal status to make DMCA takedown requests, and that misrepresenting yourself as a copyright holder to material you do not have the rights to is a crime (fraud). Just because Google is sloppy about checking whether a takedown attempt is valid doesn’t mean we will be lax too.
