Do Not Remove This Disclaimer

_20141209_171506

In my neverending quest for clarity in our great society I have found that everyone has some form of disclaimer and/or copyright notification. I suppose I’m no different, I like people who visit The Sting Of The Scorpion Blog to be well advised to the conditions of their visit. This all got me thinking about all the information one can find in regards to products and/or services and I soon realized that there is something to state about just about anything one can lay their hands on. In a moment you will read what was readily available on products around my house, in mail I have received, in email I have received, and different agreements or contracts I have entered. I’m positive that I have only scratched the surface and I invite all of y’all to comment with some of your own. Without further delay, I give to y’all my study of common disclaimers.

AGREEMENT FOR T.S.O.T.S.B. ENTRY

By accepting this Agreement and entering T.S.O.T.S.B. I hereby represent and warrant that the following statements are true and accurate:

I am personally mature enough to not be easily offended by the pictures displayed, the sometimes course language that is used, or language written in a sarcastic manner.

I am not visiting this website from the jurisdiction of any municipality, city, state, country, or other governmental entity where viewing mature content is prohibited by law. I understand the standards and laws of the community from whence I am visiting T.S.O.T.S.B., and I have made every reasonable effort to determine whether viewing the described content is legal. Furthermore, I have determined that it is legal for me to visit T.S.O.T.S.B. and choose to continue.

I am entering T.S.O.T.S.B. regardless of the content, by choice and I do not find mature content offensive or objectionable. I believe that as an adult I have the right to choose what I see and read, and I am choosing to enter T.S.O.T.S.B. under my own free will and know I have the option to leave at any time.

By entering The Sting Of The Scorpion Blog, I agree to release, discharge, and hold harmless the providers, owners and creators of this blog from any and all liability which might arise from viewing or reading the mentioned materials on this blog.

I will not copy, upload, transmit, transfer, distribute, publish, modify, or use for any commercial or other purpose any of the material on this website, including the underlying HTML source code, without permission in writing and signed by the owner of the material.

If I visit T.S.O.T.S.B. in violation of this Agreement, I understand I may be in violation of local, state, federal, international or other laws and will be subject to having this discovery reported.

It is understood that comments are allowed on every post from the general public except where noted on certain occasions. I understand that spam comments will be reported and deleted for the common good of all of the visitors to T.S.O.T.S.B. which can and will result in being barred or banned from ever leaving further comments.

I am making the choice now, to enter or to leave, it is my personal choice, and therefore I shall be held accountable.

I have read this entire Agreement and I agree to be indiscriminately bound by it.

(This agreement will be a permanent tab found at the very top of this blog for current and future reference.)
