SECURITY ADVISORY!
On 2020/11/18, suspicions were expressed that there had been a data breach.
At least some DisMembers' login data may have been compromised.

As of April 14, 2021, no further breach or news thereof has become apparent. This message just looks different because anyone who was gonna read the whole thing presumably did by now.

Policies, Cookies, etc.

Congratulations! You have found our page of policies, cookies, and etc.. Ain’t you special!

No, really, you are. Most people will agree to launch global thermonuclear war if that is what they have to click to get to their porn. So, kudos, jolly good show!

You probably got here looking for our privacy policy and our pledge of allegiance to the mighty GDPR (praise be!). And you’ve come to the right place. Scroll down to where it says “Privacy Policy”, it’s the rest of the page from thereon down.

Before we get to that, though, let’s get some other stuff out of the way. You know. The fun bit!
By continuing to use this website and/or forum, you indicate that you accept the explicit and implicit rules and guidelines that follow.

What the adjective noun is this place?
No. No. No, not that one, either. No… oh come on! Get on with it!

The UTMC is its DisMembers. It’s a DisOrganization that exists mainly to yap about motorcycles, and basically any verb you can attach to that. And some you can’t.

Nobody is making bank by running this place, you won’t be charged for loitering about here. You might be charged with loitering, but that’s between you and your local law.

What bike must I have to DisJoin this Cult?
Whatever. You don’t really need any bike. Nor a scooter. If you like the idea of riding, at least in principle, you’ll probably get along with folk a little better than if you don’t. But the actual having a bike is optional, really.
If you do have one, someone is gonna rib ya for having a shit bike, but they’ll only do that because your bike is the worst. The only way you can not have the worst bike is to have no bike at all. But that’s exempt only because not having a bike, not even having access to a bike, that really sucks plenty already.

So this is some kind of 1% MC?
Besides everything we just told you, know this. The one thing we are absolutely and positively not is a 1% MC. The whole point of the UTMC, in as much as there is a point, or a circle, is to not be like any of the other motorcycle clubs. If we wanted to be in a motorcycle club, we would join one and not faff about here.
The UTMC isn’t for people who don’t fit in so much as it is for people who don’t fit in among people who don’t fit in. We ride at right angles to orthodoxy. We're mostly bulletproof, possibly rabid, and quite likely to bite a person to death, even after being shot with some number of large caliber hollowpoint bullets. WE ARE THE GOOD GUYS.

What are the rules then?
Ooof. Don’t be a dick?
Or an ass.
Unless you’re into that.

The UTMC has always had high ideals about who is or isn’t welcome here, and how we should treat one another. These ideals have always been part of what made us a breed apart. A brood apart. A brooding tart? Yeah, that sounds right.

Basically, if you’re not an ass, nor a dick, if you can live and let live, well, come on in!
We may chop off one of your pinkies, you may be surprised to volunteer your couch for some or all of us to crash on, and like geese fly south, you will desperately want to migrate to Pennsylvania once a year. Good, clean dirt questionab ...well, it’s fun!

However, there are certain behaviors that are unacceptable around here, and are non-negotiable, and that will not be tolerated. If you feel you cannot live without any of them, one way or the other, this place isn’t for you. Please go away.

The things that will not be tolerated here are (subject to appendage):
Sexism, misogyny, racism, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia, hate speech of any kind, ableism, classism, ageism, “white-pride” or “white nationalist” bullshit, holocaust denial, holocaust apologism (yes, that’s a fucking thing now), slut-shaming, bullying, you get the idea.

“But if my intolerance isn’t tolerated, you’re intolerant!”
Yes. About that, we are intolerant. Please go to your local library, or fucking google books, and look up the “Paradox of Tolerance”, by one Karl Popper.
He was probably one of the smartest humans of the 20th century, and he beat you to it. Only by about 80 years.

Alright, alright. But surely, it’s cool if I x
We prefer xxx, but probably, yeah.
However.
Please take note that this place is
  • not an advertising outlet. Spammers can fuck right off.
  • not your e-commerce website. Go earn a living elsewhere.
  • not a church. It’s cool if you want to talk about religion with other people. But continuous proselytizing will be considered spamming.
  • not the fucking Pirate Bay. Don’t use the board as part of your devious copyright piracy plot.
  • not fucking Tinder. Nobody wants to see your dick pics. Unless they’re entertaining, obviously.
  • not a political arena. We love discussing politics. But that’s it, we discuss. We don’t rally. Rallying that doesn’t involve knobbly tires isn’t welcome.
So before we finally deal with the GDPR, here are a few final items

Trust.
You accept that you must and affirm that you do, be you a guest or a registered user, trust the Administerrerrer and moderators when they promise that they will neither use your data or information in any way that's not reasonably a part of operating this website and forum, will not sell your data or information to any 3rd parties, nor will manipulate your posts or messages or anything like either to put words into your mouth.
If you cannot trust us that far, you really shouldn't be here.
Likewise, you accept that the people running this website and forum act reasonable, acceptable, and in good faith when they trust each other not to violate your trust.
You trust that we will not just respect each other, respect you, and respect the rules we give ourselves, but that we also respect the law.
Likewise, we (Administerrerrerr and moderators) trust the registered users to refrain from the unacceptable behavior outlined above and let all such users post without prior approval of individual posts or topics. Even if we did have to step in, we'd only know that after something unacceptable has been posted.

Your Debauchery
Anytime you click "debauch", or when you send a private message, or when you Give A Fuck, or when you upload attachments, any time you, the user, submit content of any kind, that submission and the content you contributed there is recorded and stored.
That being the whole idea of an online forum, which exists for the purpose of exchanging user-generated content (aka yelling at each other over trivialities and showing off pics of your bike and all of that jazz).
You decide what the public, or recipients of your private messages, will read and see about you.
You may delete or edit posts for up to 12 hours after initially posting them. After that, you'll have to convince the administerrerrerr why he should correct the past, or send something down the memory hole. He don't much like doing that, mind.

While the administerrerrerr, backup admin and moderators affirm they won't ever put words into anybody's mouth, they reserve the right to remove or truncate, at their discretion, posts, gallery images, attachments, or whatever else you can do around here, that have illegal content, or violate our Terms of Use, or contain personal information of persons other than the user posting them. Ditto if a copyright holder complains about something being a copyright violation (i.e. something that ain't fair use, etc.).

Apart from all of that, contributions are considered to be intended for permanent display to the audience you chose (with posts being public, messages being private, etc.). Blanket removal of a user's posts will likely break a lot of old conversations. So while you can delete anything you had previously chosen to add to your profile, and while the administerrerrerr will delete your contact information and password at your request, blanket removal of your old posts, attachments, gallery photos, and associated information, such as your username, is not going to happen. Think before you post.
Hypothetically, you might be able to make the case why the admin should do the (potentially extensive) database surgery to change the username that's associated with your contributions. He cannot, at present, conceive such a reason that doesn't involve existential threats or such dire business.
Seriously. Think. Before. You. Post.

Other websites
UTMC or the Administerrerrerr cannot exercise any authority over any websites other than www.utmc-forum.org.
When a post is shared to social media, they may render a preview of content you had submitted. Search engine bots come through, and your content will be cached and indexed on a search engine.
Archival websites (like the Wayback Machine) straight up archive stuff that you may have contributed.
And all of that isn’t even addressing that someone might just copy paste something you put up. It’s the 21st century, and the internet doesn’t forget. Stuff spreads like a fungus.
Think. Before. You. FungusPost.

Revision of these rules
It may, for a number of reasons, become necessary to truncate, append, or otherwise edit or amend these rules.
And major changes will be announced on the message board. Announcing and discussing every detail correction may not be feasible, though.
What will not change is that your data that you haven’t made public yourself won’t be made public, nor will we sell it or hand it on for any other reason than legal compulsion or protecting lives.

Salvatory clause
There may be one or more items in this document, and/or in the brief version of the privacy policy that was offered for your review with your cookie notice (and that you can find here) that implicitly or explicitly
  • contradict one or more other items in these documents
  • contradict themselves
  • violate or suggest the violation of applicable laws or regulations
  • violate the laws of nature, logic, mathematics, or reality itself
  • have typographic or grammatical errors
You accept as binding any item in these documents that does not itself exhibit at least one of the qualities in this list.
You agree and accept that any item exhibiting one or more of these flaws does not thereby render any other item or items invalid, flawed, inapplicable, irrelevant, or otherwise illegitimate.
You agree and accept that any item or items that do/does exhibit one or more of these qualities, but may be interpreted in a manner that would remove or fix this flaw, it is to be so interpreted.
While we have attempted to create our policies to be as unambiguous as possible, we may have failed to succeed in that endeavor. You accept and agree that if any item in these documents may be interpreted in different ways, it is to be interpreted so as to be to the benefit of the UTMC and the operators of this website and forum.
You accept and agree that the UTMC holds no liability of any kind that is not explicitly accepted in this document or in the brief version of the privacy policy.
