Content on Site only exists because of the vibrant community of users like you who collaborate to write, edit, and maintain the content. We happily welcome your participation in this community. We encourage you to be civil and polite in your interactions with others in the community, to act in good faith, and to make edits and contributions aimed at furthering the mission of Site.
Certain activities, whether legal or illegal, may be harmful to other users and violate our rules, and some activities may also subject you to liability. Therefore, for your own protection and for that of other users, you may not engage in such activities on our sites. These activities include, but are not limited to:

We will terminate, in appropriate circumstances, users of Site who are repeat infringers.
However, we also recognize that not every takedown notice is valid or in good faith.
