Terms of Use

This is a social experiment. We know that some people may get hurt. The moderators will do their best to disguise the true identities of those mentioned in submissions. If something has slipped through that's an inside joke or something that a bunch of people would understand, etc.... let us know. We'll do our best to take care of it.

This is truly not about embarassing people. This is about poking fun at ourselves. Let's keep it real. With that said, you choose to come to this site. We are not liable for any personal damages incurred from this site. I'm not precisely sure what those could be but I know Bowdoin people are pretty creative.

Privacy Policy

This site is not sophisticated enough to know who you are (or care). I can make an educated guess, though, so don't try to crash it! You're requested not to use real names but (stereotypical) descriptions of each person in the discussion. All submissions are screened by the moderators for appropriateness (and funniness). You're safe submitting with us. I'd show you the source to prove it but I'm starting to get a headache.
