I noticed this generic disclaimer under all pages of the Einstein Web Site.

'This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Grant NSF-0200852 and by the Max Planck Gesellschaft (MPG). Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the investigators and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF or the MPG.'

I was just wondering if is worded properly to cover the breadth of opinion, bizarreness of opinion and antagonistic opinions that can be expressed on a web forum.

Maybe I'm being 'paranoid', but perhaps something like this needs to be added.

'The NSF, the MPG and all other sponsors and associated organisations disclaim any and all responsibility whatsoever for any and all opinions expressed within the forums of this website. This disclaimer includes claims for monetary damages.'

Perhaps the origional needs running past a friendly and internet-savvy lawyer?

Edit: Spelling, broaded broadening of disclaimer.
