I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV. I'm not sure that having someone sign a document that states it isn't legally binding means anything, even if you are providing a link to another document hosted on a seperate page in a different language that *is* legally binding. Howwever, I do think that would be cold comfort for most LJ users who find their accounts deleted or purged because SUP held that they had violated the terms of service in some way.
That's why I wanted to remind everyone about the Eerie Indiana community on Dreamwidth. It's basically a mirror of the LJ comm, except YouTube embedding doesn't work, you can't schedule entries in advance, and embedding Tweets show text and no pictures. For this reason, I will continue to use and update the Eerie Indiana livejournal community, but I will try to get better about importing updates to DW on a daily basis.
Hopefully I'll see you there!
