Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

I like how RAP culture is blamed, but I seem to remember ROCK (of the PUNK variety) not being big on the "I need to be an educated citizen" category, either. So, I believe that if these youth were infatuated with ROCK (As was the case 20 years or so ago), we might as well blame that music for all the evils of the world as well, right?
