TradeStation Ministry of Truth

Do you remember the Ministry of Truth in Orwell's 1984? Apparently TradeStation does.

Here's how the policy used to read:

By posting information in or otherwise using any Message Board, newsgroup, software library or other interactive service that may be available to you on or through this site, you agree that you will not upload, post or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any content?including text, communications, software, images, sounds, data or other information?that:

is unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another's privacy, tortious, contains explicit or graphic descriptions or accounts of sexual acts (including but not limited to sexual language of a violent or threatening nature directed at another individual or group of individuals), uses vulgar language in the creation of a user name, is discourteous or not constructive (in tone or content), impolite, crude or otherwise violates these Guidelines;

victimizes, harasses, degrades or intimidates an individual or group of individuals on the basis of religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age or disability;

infringes on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, right of publicity or other proprietary right of any party;

constitutes unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, junk or bulk e-mail (also known as "Spamming"), chain letters, any other form of unauthorized solicitation, or any form of lottery or gambling;

contains software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs that are designed or intended to disrupt, damage or limit the functioning of any software, hardware, or telecommunications equipment or to damage or obtain unauthorized access to any data or other information of any third party;

impersonates any person or entity, including any employee or representative of TradeStation Securities or its affiliates;

is a buy or sell recommendation of specific securities or a promotion, advertisement or offer to sell specific trading strategies or systems (this is a marketplace of ideas - not products or services).

circulates or discusses rumors about public companies or securities offerings or transactions.

contains email addresses, addresses, telephone numbers or other contact information.

repeats the subject and topic in multiple forums.

Now there is this:
