  2. You understand that the poster of the content is entirely responsible for all the content they post. MutRunning.com is not responsible for any of the content on the forum. To be clear, the poster (and NOT MutRunning.com) is entirely responsible for all the content that he/she posts.  Because of this, MutRunning.com does not guarantee the accuracy or integrity of the content on its forum. You understand that by using this forum you may be viewing content that is offensive, objectionable, and not factual. Under no circumstances will MutRunning.com be liable in any way for any content, including, but not limited to, any errors in any content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, re-posted, printed, screenshot or otherwise made available. 
  3. You understand that you are entirely responsible for the content you post on the forums or anywhere on MutRunning.com. Because of this, you may be responsible for any of the laws that you break when posting as well as any false claims and comments/details leading to defamation. This includes, but is not limited to violating another party’s copyright by posting another party’s article in its entirety on the forum. You can link to other articles and content on third party sites, but otherwise if you copy and paste content directly from other parties into the MutRunning.com forum, then you are at risk for being sued by other parties for copyright infringement. 
  4. You understand that MutRunning.com does not pre-screen content, but it may remove content at its sole discretion for any reason whatsoever. If you would like to suggest that something be removed, please use our “report” button or email our contact email at MutRunning.com. We do not have to remove any content and may or may not agree to your request. A post that is reported by the “report a post” function will eventually be reviewed by a moderator. There is no guarantee other posts are read by a human moderator. 

Forum post guidelines for MutRunning.com:  We aim to have thoughtful and interesting discussions as well as informative posts on this forum.
