Disclaimer/Terms of Use

Eine wehmütige Vorbemerkung: Als ich im Jahr 2000 meine erste Webseite aufsetzte, war dieser Disclaimer noch eine spassige Seite zum Schmunzeln.  Doch schon bald wurden die Dinge seriöser.  Ich hoffe, dass ich mit den folgenden Zeilen (sowie dem Impressum, den Nutzungsbedingungen, den Datenschutzrichlinien, den Hinweisen zum Urheberrecht, …) üble Zeitgenossen/Anwälte/Abmahner/etc. von deren manchmal seltsamen Kontaktwünschen abhalte.

So wurde dieses absonderliche Werk daraus (der Name der Website ist natürlich aktualisiert):
