NAMM is under no obligation to remove or edit any generally objectionable material, and assumes no responsibility or liability arising from any material transmitted or posted using this Web Site.
You agree not to post any abusive, defamatory, libelous, profane, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated, or unlawful material. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned from the Web Site (and your service provider being informed).
