If you do not like anything on site, please know that this site is for entertainment purposes only. We are not responsible for any damage that happens to you if you believe or refuse to believe what we say on the site. We are also not responsible for any emotional trauma you face because of this site. We are also not sure whether that trauma is good for you or bad for you. You are responsible for whatever you do. Don’t blame us nor try to restrict our freedom of expression in any way.
This is not a site for everyone. It is a very niche site exclusively for a very specific audience who respects Turtleverse.com ideology. Not everyone is welcome here. Just as we will not get in your home to dictate your lifestyle or choice of décor, we don’t encourage trolls to come on Turtleverse.com and comment on what we do on our site.
We are within our rights to clean our home (aka our site) in whatever way we want to. And since it is our home, we have full freedom to decide who is a troll, what comments to keep, what to reply to, what to say, and do whatever we want to with any content that comes to our site.
Still Longer version:
This site and its content are for an extremely mature-reader keen to understanding various points of view to arrive at the truth. The objective is not to hurt any sentiments or be biased in favor of or against any particular person, society, gender, creed, nation, or religion. Kindly do not browse through the articles if you believe that certain kinds of content may be offensive to you. Viewing any content of the site is a conscious choice of the visitor. We recommend that unless you are completely convinced, it is preferable that you do not read anything on this site. Simply close the browser window immediately and enjoy the rest of the innumerable web pages on the internet. Don’t tell us later that we did not warn you.
Reading this site may cause permanent changes in your thought process and ideology. It may force you to rethink your entire belief system and bring fundamental changes to your personality. Not everyone is ready for such a massive transformation and hence we recommend that one better avoid the site. At the least, we compel you to read this entire Disclaimer carefully in totality. Do not read a single word on-site if you do not understand the Disclaimer completely. The Disclaimer has been deliberately made cryptic and confusing to dissuade you from reading anything on the site.
However, if you read anything on this site despite our explicit warning and attempts to discourage you, you are doing it completely at your own risk and cannot blame or hold turtleverse.com or any of its associates liable for any damages – psychological, emotional, physical, social or in any other form that may emerge.
The authors exercise their artistic right to portray social reality as well as fiction with utmost creativity in all possible forms. Some of that portrayal may take the form of questioning values and morals that are prevalent in society. We exercise our right to freedom to use harsh words, ridicules, and other forms of expression to put across our point.
However, it must be kept in mind that all our expressions be considered figurative and within the ambit of the law of land, as is the case with all films and books released in the country without facing legal bans. If you find some content to be against law of the land, it is because you have taken figurative expression literally. You must re-interpret the content keeping in mind that Turtleverse.com, under no circumstance, endorses going against the law – directly or indirectly. For example,
- If you read on site, “break the law” – does not mean violate the penal codes. It probably means “break the self-imposed assumptions of your mind that limit your growth”.
- If you read on site, “kill the criminal” – it does not mean killing any human. It probably means “kill the urge to go against natural and legal laws.”
- If you read on site, “destroy the rapist”, it does not mean lynching a convict. It probably means “destroy the urge to insult women” or “country should punish the rapist as per prevailing laws and all citizens must support the process.”
- At times, such content may be pure fiction or a way of expression, not intended to be taken literally. Like scenes of violence in Bollywood films that are passed by the Censor Board. You even have scenes that show the killing of politicians, ministers, bomb blasts, insulting Gods, and whatnot. Consider our content to be our film. Learn if you can from it, do not misinterpret. Or entertain yourself. If you do not like it, do not read.
The site and its content are based on collective views of several intellectuals of past and present, and does not necessarily mean that authors or administrators, or owners of the site agree to all the content in part or complete. Remedies or health solutions provided must be followed only after approval from a competent physician. We do not intend to replace established medical practices.
The purpose of the site is to promote peace, non-violence, tolerance, friendship, unity, prosperity, happiness, and integrity in an honest yet creative manner. All content on the site should be evaluated from this perspective alone. All words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, and posts are figurative expressions for these ideals alone and are not to be taken literally.
We do not support piracy. We make the best endeavor to not allow plagiarism or the use of pirated content. However for various reasons, including lack of clarity on the ownership status of the easily available content in the public domain, at times, out of mistake some copyrighted content may have been used. Since the site is maintained, managed, edited, moderated by a team of volunteers (refer to next section), it is impossible for us to track or identify the source of the mistake. We are not liable for any legal damages whatsoever for it. What we recommend is to contact us with all evidence of content ownership. We would review the same and remove the relevant content.
Turtleverse.com content is maintained, managed, edited, moderated by a team of volunteers. The volunteers keep changing from time to time and we do not keep track of them at any point in time. It is impossible for us to monitor any content because:
It is not humanly possible for us
We believe in self-censorship
We trust humanity in general and consider each individual to be responsible for their acts
a vast number of volunteers work under pseudonyms and we do not even know their real identity. We are not even interested in their real identities because our focus is on principles mentioned earlier and not individuals.
It is likely that some content may be posted by some volunteer on one of the many platforms that are against the law of land or infringement of copyright. We are not responsible for that in any manner. We are also not in a position to identify the individual(s) responsible for it. Turtleverse.com has nothing to do with such content even if it claims to be posted on behalf of Turtleverse.com, or by Turtleverse.com, or on Turtleverse.com platforms.
However, Turtleverse.com is proactively against piracy and respects the law of the land. If you come across such content on turtleverse.com, please contact us through the Contact page on-site with comprehensive and conclusive proof of violation. We will remove the same from the Turtleverse.com website or the platform that we control.
Please note that most platforms are not controlled or managed by us. They are managed by volunteers, supporters, and fans, and we do not have any access to them. We will however request the administrators of the concerned platform on which offending content was posted to remove the content. It will be impossible for us to showcase proof of our communication with them. Or guarantee that the content will be removed. What you must do is to directly contact the administrators of such platforms and coordinate with them. Turtleverse.com is in no way responsible or involved or liable to be involved in this process. Nor is Turtleverse.com liable for any damages whatsoever out of such content.
We do not support anything that is against law of the land.
