Terms of Use

We would rather not have to write all of this stuff about how you can and can't use the site. We'd like to think that we can all work together with trust and mutual understanding, get along nicely and have fun while genuinely trying to build healthy lifestyles that ensure a healthy, happy planet for future generations to enjoy in a non-violent and secular kind of way. However, it's important to have some ground rules, so we hope it's all covered below. If we find out that we've missed something then we'll amend this page and if you have registered on this site we'll let you know.
