Comment on Students Accessing

Since two of the owners of this website are at times professors the students (of either owner/professor or other professors) should know that normal FERPA protections do not apply and that by registering, being registered, using, or otherwise accessing this site FERPA does not apply. Continued use within the Terms of Use is tacit agreement to this and knowledge as such waiving future expectations of special privacy as a student. This website is maintained by the professors but not affiliated or supported by either professors University.

Please note there are jerks and assholes all over the Internet (duh). Content from this website is copied by robot agents all over the Internet. Entire articles, sections of pages, phrases, titles, and other content are continuously infringed on by students, academics, governments, and corporations. Get a freaking clue before telling me an article posted by Sydney is infringing when it was posted a full year before a particular agency copied much of her content. Your inability to not jump to conclusions is not my problem.
