Subject Re: Terms of Service on Forums

A quick reminder.  The support forums are still pointing to Oracle's
Policies and Terms of Use document:

http://www.openoffice.org/terms_of_use

This is inappropriate, inaccurate, confusing and quite possibly
improper.  It is also embarrassing for our project to have a Terms of
Use page that starts:

"1. INTRODUCTION. This Site and its contents are made available by
Oracle America, Inc. for and on behalf of itself and its subsidiaries
and affiliates under common control ("Oracle")."

(Nothing against Oracle, of course, but it is embarrassing that this
page is still here 8 months after I first reported it,)

I've made several good faith attempts at proposing a replacement over
the past year, but all were lost in bottomless bikeshedding.   I'm not
going to waste my time on this yet another time.  Hopefully someone on
the PMC feels empowered to take my past proposal and run with it, or
create an alternative and resolve this issue.

Regards,

-Rob
