We reserve the right to remove content that is inconsistent with this Policy, and/or suspend the account of any user who violates this Policy, in our sole discretion.  Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Acceptable Use Policy have the meanings assigned to them in our Terms of Service at /kb/terms (the “Terms of Service”)
