The Communications Act of 1934 (Click Here to read about this Act) and subsequent Telecommunications Act of 1996 (Click Here to read about this Act) cover content on FireAaffairs.com (this site, we, our, or us as applicable). More specifically, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (Click Here to read about this Act) protects this site, its Users and other Content Providers by providing immunity from liability of publishing information provided by others. That being said, we have decided to go the extra mile in moderating its Message Boards.
We have one of the best systems in place to regulate the Message Boards.
