of discussion group or "bulletin board" technology on
the Internet and the variations in quantity and timing of contributions,

the content of every message published on the site. Discussion

not reviewed by smartgirls.tv prior to publication. The contributions
on smartgirls.tv are written by anonymous
members of the general public. smartgirls.tv
does not dictate the content of the contributions.

may be times when strong words are appropriately quoted from a
TV show, or when they are used to express strong feelings. If
this is done, it is at the moderator’s discretion whether
to remove them.
