Found a couple typos in the Terms of Use Agreement (support.toastmastersclubs.org/doc/item/terms-of-use-agreement)

Under "Use of FreeToastHost websites" in the first numbered paragraph, the first sentence currently ends with "...without our consent." "our" should be "your."

In the second paragraph after the ordered list, the second sentence begins with "The club president and the district governor are responsible..." Needs to be updated to reflect title change from district governor to district director. This change is site-wide (i.e. global) in nature, though I've not come across the old titles anywhere else that I can recall.

*Incorrect*... it is *our* consent, *not* your consent.

Users do not define what is a script in violation of the Terms of Use, *we* (Brian, myself, and FTH Ambassadors) define that.

That one's been changed back. However, it seems to me that maybe the wording could be a little clearer. I can see how it could be read either way.

Well I trust your instincts on the wording. The intention is that people do not insert scripts that alter the system functioning without asking us first. Generally speaking, we should not allow that alteration, but there may be some sporadic exceptions.

Here's a possible rewording:
Use of user scripts. We reserve the right to delete any content containing user supplied scripts that interfere with the proper functioning of the FreeToastHost system or alter it without our consent.

Except that "interfere" needs to be "interferes" to jibe properly with the singular "content" to which it refers. I still don't like ending the sentence with "without our consent" because we are all used to reading in various places "You agree that we can do thus and so without your consent." Howsabout this?

Use of user scripts. We reserve the right to delete any content containing user-supplied scripts that, without our consent, interferes with or alters the proper functioning of the FreeToastHost system.

I think it's a winner! :cheer:
