Terms of Service
Truth be told, we are not too big on rules here at FN headquarters. You'll hear more Rage Against the Machine in our office halls than C-SPAN. But what we learned playing Sid Meir's Civilization many years ago is that every society needs rules! Anarchy sounded great in theory but it was awfully tough to go to war with the other guys if the citizens at home were running rampant. So there are laws in the world, and we need to follow them. This page is devoted to keeping all of us legal and in order.
