Here is a lengthy disclaimer that was recently sent to me. We don’t sell products of any kind and everything here is completely free. I didn’t have time to modify everything, but I was advised to put this up as soon as possible, so here it is.

Visitors may leave comments that seem to know what they are discussing, but may be inaccurate. I do my best to deliver solid information, but nothing is 100%. It’s a crazy world out there and people actually make a living at suing people!
