I should have read the TOS more thoroughly before clicking "submit".

I have a question about the TOS (to which I did just agree). There's a part in it about commercial activity. I wonder how this affects:

1) Sales of things which take place on this forum-- either through people contacting each other informally for buy/sell/trade, or if the OWC folks eventually decide to put up a section specifically for buy/sell/swap/freebies

2) Profits from forum-related posting, e.g., use of the forum as a source of Mac info, for which one would normally have to pay (e.g., Macfixit).

First off- the forums TOS were generated outside of OWC and actually protect [price.com] as well as advertisers, sponsors, etc.

On the commercial thing - just effectively to protect against the forum turning into a advertisers free mart. Forums aren't here so people can put up their own self serving affiliate links.

All that said - the ebay, craigslist stuff and other stuff that's been posted thus far hasn't raised any flags or concerns. The policy was written for the longer term. The interpretation of #2 above really is off a bit there. smiling smiley

LOL Larry, you need to be able to turn off hotlinking... and while we're at it, an option to turn off smileys...

I wasn't so much concerned about item #1, as I am item #2. Turning the forum into a pay-for-access (not suggesting you would do that now, but could happen down the line) is unfair, considering that it is the users who have contributed toward making it what it is. Also, there are copyright issues with restricting access to things which are initially in the public domain (such as an open-access forum) ... which is why what Macfixit did was pretty awful. Again, not saying you would do this now, but there is always a temptation to do that in future. When Macfixit went private, there were a LOT of angry people out there...

I must be missing something - there are absolutely no plans to ever charge people to access this forum. And i didn't see any provision in the TOS for that either.

So, before any *warning* from OWC or Price.com ( somebody clue me in here . . . how the hell is Price.com connected to this??????) we HAVE to agree to these terms of service? Before any questions about what this means????

EXACTLY HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT DEALMAC PULLED, IN AND OF ITSELF???

Yes, I know there are some differences, but still . . . this is a shot out of right field (sorry 'mintie) . . . at least to me, it is.

Obviously I have clicked on it . . . couldn't make this post otherwise, but SHEESH, STILL THINK THIS KINDA SUCKS . . .

But that is just my opinion . . . and like other things, everybody has one!!

I don't see what's so difficult about this. I don't use drugs, so why should I object to a drug test?

Larry, my urine sample is on its way.
