Terms of Service, partially lifted (shamelessly) from those used by Instapundit (they’re great, and they fit very well). I figured it was time that Redleg Nation had terms of service. First, a disclaimer:

Similarly, we have no association with the ownership group or any businesses related to the Reds.

If you are an attorney or law firm representing a party filing such lawsuit or causing such a letter to be sent, you agree to provide a bond in the same amount as security against the liquidated damages provided for in paragraph 2.B. above unless you have never accessed, viewed, read, or otherwise made use of Redleg Nation content in any form.
