Nice. "Agree or go away." A good policy.

Speaking of plain English...

Although not exactly "on-topic", I've been meaning to post this very
nice Terms Of Use I came across. I hope it becomes a trend.

There has been a Plain English movement in state and federal government
in the US for some time, so I presumed that Great Britain also had a
similar policy. Apparently, it's relatively new for them to disapprove
of unclear legalese. Nonetheless, I give them credit for taking these
steps:

The flip side, though, is a problem with "banned words." The moment we
star banning words, we infringe on freedom of speech. And, as anyone
know knows me knows, that's intolerable--in the US, Britain, or
anywhere.
