We are committed
We are committed to maintaining a website that exhibits the following characteristics;
We believe that information is intrinsically a valuable commodity, and that all information should be free, and freely available. We absolutely endorse and comply with all regulations prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, disability or age, and we shall make no discrimination of any kind on our website.
Our website will be free of pornography and/or sexual adult content, so as to be appropriately accessible to people of all ages.
Access to our website will remain free and not require any payment, subscription or membership to acces it.
Our website will remain family friendly, and be suitable and appropriate for people of any age or sensitivity.
We are very strong supporters of free speech and free expression and resist any attempts of governments to impose limits on what can be said on the web. Therefore, we allow content that many of the larger websites might not. This is not to say that we allow anything and everything. But we believe strongly that the web belongs to the people of the world, and that it transcends governmental control.
We realise that we are human and therefore prone to error. We welcome constructive feedback, contributions from others, as to ways of improving our website, or of correcting errors and omissions.
