If you’re giving us content for our site, you’re pinky swearing that it’s yours or you have permission to use it in the way you’re using it. We can take your content and hack the crap out of it, spin it, and even make money off of it without paying you a dime. But wait, there’s more. If anything bad happens because of something you submit, you agree to pay us, our legal bills, or other bills that may result because of what you submit. Basically, we’re taking you to Judge Judy.
