I hadn't actually read the use terms of this site in detail before. I find this mildly offensive:

You irrevocably grant a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, unlimited, royalty-free, sublicenseable, transferable, assignable license, without a right to ever terminate such license, to Intuit Inc. to copy, modify, distribute, publish and otherwise use and commercialize Your edits and other contributions in any manner now known or in the future discovered. You are free to refrain from ever submitting any contributions. If You decide to submit contributions, You remain free to continue to use them otherwise as if You had never submitted them to the Site. However, You cannot terminate this license once You have submitted contributions to the Site.

I would hope that Intuit doesn't, say, publish a book including my altruistic contributions and sell it for profit. Can any responsible Intuit party tell me what the real intent is of this clause? - rlw (Talk) 19:37, 13 December 2005 (CST)
