http://www.thunderstar.net/acceptable.html Three little snip ditty's telling me the author/webmaster is a bit more than suspicious:
Giveaway points: (*)
snip> criminals do make up a increasing percentage of our society due to the proliferation of drugs, *psychiatry* and violence in the media. *Such institutions* turn out criminals and perverts of an unthinkable nature on an alarming rate so were really not out of line in streetproofing our kids and ourselves against it.*
snip> Where a site or posting appears to be harmful (but possibly lawful none the less) always bring the site and its address to the attention of the Webmaster. Note this would also cover sites that promote heavy or inappropriate use of legal drugs or and use of weapons, illegal drugs or alcohol or any other controlled substance, irresponsible practices, *psychiatric spin offs*, *perversions of the education system, (for example sites promoting the drugging in schools of children) etc*... Such sites will be reviewed for removal under this policy.
snip> More over the very small handful of criminals perverts, drug dealers, and the products of various *psychiatric spin offs* will tend to pray on normal folk unless restrained. And though these individuals, as they undoubtedly will whine, have rights too, BUT! Their "rights" do not extend into allowing them access to the more fortunate majority of folk in a way that could be compromising, the protection of whom this document is intended. It really otherwise is none of anyone's business what users do or don't do on line. But to keep things afloat I find it necessary to place these few restrictions in place at this time.
