We here at the altladies.com Community choose to decline in the
participation of the now common Internet practice of requiring
that a Guest provide personal information in exchange for
User privileges, nor do we feel the need to subject our Guests
to personally invasive forms as an entrance condition.
We intend to steadfastly adhere to our 'no strings attached' policy
regarding our Guest's use of this Community, as shall we also strive
to continue to maintain a complimentary and commercial-free site
for our Guest's convenience and enjoyment.
We consider YOU, our Guest, to be THE single most important
element of our Community, and we are quite grateful for your
kind support. Thank you!
We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our Guests
of the fact that any and all conversations occurring within this
Community shall remain completely confidential. The verbose
logging is not enabled here, nor shall it be enabled in the
foreseeable future. All Guests may be completely secure in
the knowledge that, while visiting here with us, their privacy
shall be maintained, protected, and most of all, respected.
Any and all personal information and/or e-mail addresses received
by this Community shall remain strictly confidential and never be sold
or rented or otherwise distributed to third-parties or ever be posted
without prior and direct permission.
We do not set invasive COOKIES from this site (Exceptions: one Java Game
and also for the Community Discussion Board). However, certain third-party
providers and personal sites linked to us may do so. If you do not wish
to allow the COOKIES to be set into your machine's hard drive, you
may prevent this from occurring by simply accessing and then
altering the Preference Settings of your current browser.
Please be aware that this Community is a PUBLIC one, and
therefore, any posted information (such as Images, e-mail
addresses and Web URLs) is available to all persons surfing
the Web. We cannot be held responsible for any future
situations arising from the posting of such information
here within our Community.
We cannot be held responsible for the behaviour of any individual who
enters our Community Chat Wing. We are a PUBLIC establishment,
and therefore, anyone is free to enter. We do utilize monitors to
maintain a peaceful atmosphere, but occasionally you might
encounter an extremely rude person while conversing within. If
so, we profusely apologize in advance, and ask that you please do
not hold the discourteous actions of others against us. Thanks!
This Community is NOT a cyber site, NOT a dating site, and is
definitely NOT a pornography site! Although it appears that for
some strange reason this Community has been deemed a
pornography site by certain self-proclaimed "watchdog" websites,
they have evidently failed to actually visit and examine it, as this
Community could by no far stretch of the imagination be considered
a pornography website. Simply being a Lesbian is excuse enough
to be labeled as pornographic on the Internet these days, Ladies,
and we should all tremendously resent that sad fact.
In regard to our Wedding Chapel - this room was especially designed
to be used by any Guests wishing to proclaim and demonstrate their
Love for one other on the Internet. Please understand that conducting
a Wedding or a Joining here cannot be considered, in any manner, a
legal Ceremony, but is merely a way for two Women to express
their feelings and to share them with the Community.
The altladies.com Community was initially launched June 30,1998.
Expressly created for Lesbians to provide a quality (and safe)
alternative to the 'meat market' chat establishments currently
available online, this Community's main objective was to fulfill
the needs of those Women who simply desired to socialize with
one another within a pleasant and tranquil setting without being
forced to suffer rude interruption and unwelcome contact.
We began on a wing and a prayer with a chat client and a vision
and then hesitantly commenced from that point. We soon learned
that, as the Community flourished and expanded (sometimes at an
increasingly alarming rate), this sort of venture tended to take on
a life of its own. But, even though this Community has grown ex-
ponentially since its inception, we do feel that we have managed
to preserve and maintain the concept of its original design - that of
a welcoming, respectful, and supportive SHELTERED SPACE
for all Women, regardless of whether or not they are Lesbians.
The use of this Community was always intended to be
completely free of charge, requiring neither monetary nor
informational exchange as qualification for User privileges.
We accept absolutely no commercial banner advertisements,
nor do we utilize click advertisements. We selectively advertise
ONLY not-for-profit sites of specific interest to both Lesbians
and heterosexual Women. We do offer Links to certain com-
mercial sites, but these are also carefully chosen to reflect the
general tastes and interests of our Guests.
This Community is solely owned, operated and administered by
EarthMother, who was born a Lesbian and is quite PROUD of that fact. :)
