You agree to the following statement when it pops up, but after that it becomes unavailable. So just as a public service, these are the terms of usage you "agreed" to do when you became a member or got airlifted here from one of the forum's previous incarnations.

By accessing “Zappa.com” (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”, “Zappa.com”, “http://zappa.com/messageboard”), you agree to be legally bound by the following terms. If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms then please do not access and/or use “Zappa.com”. We may change these at any time and we’ll do our utmost in informing you, though it would be prudent to review this regularly yourself as your continued usage of “Zappa.com” after changes mean you agree to be legally bound by these terms as they are updated and/or amended.

It's no more than normal to make sure no criminality happens on a person's or company's digital property, whether it's drug deals or death threats or open racism. It clearly shows that JP crosses the line continuously - most of his posts have content that qualifies as "hateful", "abusive", "vulgar" and "threatening".

Although I am surprised that there's no clause for racism or homophobia, which most forums have - then again this is a very old version of PHPBB and this is probably the standard text that comes with that program.

Of course none of this matters. Only reason why I posted it is it's ridiculous that the terms of usage cannot be accessed unless you register. I had to log out and re-register to see it. I wanted to put it in FAQ. Maybe in a few weeks I'll post it there, less chance of it getting lost.

JPF belongs more to the Ku-Klux-Klan forum than Zappa forum.
He'd meet a lot of folks like him and I wonder why he spends his time here instead.
Probably just to make us mad.
In another life, I'm sure he would have been a Nazi.
The attitude, the hate, the rage, all is already there.

At least, minus two or three members, we don't see him as grandiose as he sees himself.

you agree, through your use of this forum, that you are obligated to only
post material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar,
hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually-oriented, threatening,
invasive of a person's privacy [f/d/i/a/v/h/h/o/p/s-o/t/i], or otherwise
in violation of any law; multiple infractions are strongly encouraged...this
is not only mandatory, but legal actions can be taken against you if you
fail to post a minimum of three [3] f/d/i/a/v/h/h/o/p/s-o/t/i posts
per calendar day, you also agree to post copyrighted material unless the
copyright is owned by the zft, or you have documentation from owner of
the copyrighted material specifically denying permission to post their
copyrighted material ; spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters,
pyramid schemes, and nigerian 419 solicitations are also appropriate

note that it is impossible for us to confirm the validity of posts on this
forum, nor do we give a fuck, so please remember that we do not actively
monitor the posted messages and are not responsible for their f/d/i/a/v/h/h/o/
p/s-o/t/i content; we'll warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of
any information presented ... and if you believe that, we have some prime land
available for your private perusal ... the messages express the views of the
author, not necessarily the views of this forum, & anyone who feels that a
posted message is objectionable is encouraged to fuck themselves immediately
with a rubber hose; we have the rights to highlight particularly objectionable
content, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that content is primo
stuff... this is a laborious manual review process; we're now able to expedite
back-end server data mining here on the zappa forum with the help of some
kind & accommodating folks from the local nsa field office, however, please be
fucking patient [this policy applies to all member profile information & pm's]

you remain nominally responsible for the content of your messages, nor
will we indemnify and hold you harmless from any complaints, lawsuits or
c&d letters, personal attacks from any website; we at this forum also
reserve the right to thieve your identity [or any information we have
about you] if advantageous to us

if you lack the ability, as you register, to choose your username, we advise
that you seek professional help; with this user account you are about to
register, you agree to immediately post your password on the forum, you
also agree to use another member's account to post messages or browse
this forum if the abuse or confusion potential is too tempting to resist

after you register and log into this forum, you can fill out a detailed profile;
it is your responsibility to present sanitized inaccurate disinformation...any
information we deem accurate will be compiled and flogged to every bulk
mailer, spam hub, and i.d. re-seller we can

please note: with each post, your ip address is recorded in the event
that you need to be banned from this forum or your isp contacted; this will
only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement, in other
words: whatever you can do to have a good time, let's get on with it so
long as it doesn't cause a murder
