Spidey sense a'tinglin'

I'm trying to catch up on some of your posts since I had a spare minute or two, and noticed quite a few people are doing this LJMeme.com Crush Meme.  Did any of you read their Terms of Service when you signed up?  I already know the answer, but I like to hear myself type.

Let me quote from the end of their Terms of Service, with the emphasis being mine...
"By submitting, posting or displaying any Materials on or through the LJmeme.com service, you automatically grant to us a worldwide, non-exclusive, sublicenseable, transferable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right to copy, distribute, create derivative works of, publicly perform, display and or sell such Materials. By posting said information, including personal information, you grant us full ownership over it for any purpose. This is an object lesson. Don't give out information you don't want other people to see without reading the fine print."

Just sayin'...  I ain't sharing squat with these people, personally...

I hate to ask -- but what does the whole TOS paragraph mean, then, in layman's terms?

Basically, they can do anything they want with the info you give them, including your name, address, password, who you want to get it on with, etc.

Not only that, but they are going to be snarky about it, as evidenced by the last two sentences...

That's why I never fill out that crap :)

Completely off topic here, but... I just found your journal while clicking through the bio of a common friend. I like your style, so I added you as a friend. Feel free to add me back if you want. I'm sorta looking for LJ friends right now anyway. Welp, keep up the good work.

*strolls through your friends list* Ah, that danged McFeeley is guilty...again! =)

Sadly, my works been very busy of late, thus the lack of updates. 'Tis something I'm working on changing, so you might see more of me on your friends list yet!
