Effective. Well integrated.
I like the entire website. . .easy to use, navigate and not all slicked up with google ads.
Good job.

pierretopping, you should remove this statement from the footer of your page

"UNDER CURRENT UK FREEDOM OF SPEECH LAW[S]. THE ADMINISTRATOR/OWNER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE NOR ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANY ITEMS/POSTS ON THIS FORUM"

In respect of your forum it is not correct, as the publisher of the website you are lable for all it's content, it is the webhost/isp who is exempted under uk law, not the owner/publisher of the website.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. That statement in the footer was given directly to me by a legal expert. Are we saying then that we are completely responsible for the contents of our forums even if we explicitly say we are not

Has anybody done a thread on this ?

Thanks Pierre

pretty much yes, since you can't explicitly claim lack of responsibility if the law says you are

If you have no admins or moderators then you can just about get away with it, but you would be safest removing all TOPIC edit/delete responsibilities from the admins/moderators then you can safely say that you are not responsible for the content. If you so much as edit/delete a single topic or reply you can no longer disclaim responsibility as you are then actively monitoring content which makes you responsible for it.

Its not freedom of speech you have to worry about, its libel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defamation

Probably a better strategy would be to state that the content is user generated and not monitored. If you are then made aware of a defamatory post then it would be in your interests to remove it.
