Well done Preston. I have gone to the extent of providing this new chat forum, setting it up and paying the monthly hosting fees. Is it too much to put a disclaimer to prevent people from abusing the site ?
I hope you see it from my point of view. The agreement firstly, ensures forumites that their privacy will not be compromised and secondly simply means that I can't be held responsible for anybody else's comments and copyright infringments.
