However, TalkSmaq.com will always reserve the Right to delete, or block, or ban any User’s content for any reason that we see fit (this is just the caveat that needs to be here legally, but it will probably never happen unless someone is doing something illegal or is attempting to damage TalkSmaq.com in any regard).

For example, you are absolutely free to discuss ice cream on TalkSmaq.com, however if any Group’s Admin has established Rules that express that none of their Group’s Members are to discuss ice cream, then TalkSmaq.com will not apply a penalty but that Group’s Admin might if they/she/he chooses to.
