No problem regarding the personal post, I have made the same mistake myself.

I also see what you mean regarding the language of the privacy statement.
"unauthorised use" could be interpreted as any use that has not been given explicit approval before the fact.

Weasel words imho.

And Mr Holstein if this was the point you were trying to make, I accept it.

They're ORs, unfortunately. The language is unclear but it seems to be one
of those infernal boilerplate pieces of shit that basically invalidate the
assurances as to privacy.

You could still probably press the suit. "Unauthorised use" has recently
been defined and redefined, it's an evolving piece of law and if you have
the resources to get a jury trial they'll *want* to find in favor of the
plaintiff, which is more important than you might expect.

You seem to be missing the part where the comment was removed (several

So what? Ban the IP address. Admittedly a childish comment but the site is
hardly one that is frequented by children.
imho Mr K. Greenbaum should be fired and sued.

And Mr Holstein you seem to be using your quote above out of context...

Compliance with Legal Process
We may disclose personal information if we or one of our affiliated
companies is required by law to disclose personal information, or if we
believe in good faith that such action is necessary to comply with a law
or some legal process, to protect or defend our rights and property, to
protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our web sites or to protect
the personal safety or property of our users or the public.

INAL, however I ask where is the legal process in this matter?
