The following questions will be resubmitted time and time again until you provide me with accurate and seemingly correct responses. They are simple questions.

Please do not blow me off by referring me to some vague section of your manual.

I have read and re-read your

lovely manual

  • Question 1:

    Could you point out where it says I cannot use materials from a banned member(s). I'm sure you can point it out to me if its there. Your manual is a mere 20 pages long. Point me to the page and approximate line number.

    1. If it's not in the manual, I would need a written statement signed/dated by you to that effect. Please add it to your manual so that others are informed.

    2. If I cannot use materials from a banned member, then in order to comply with your request, I will need the entire list of banned members. Can this be provided to me by AccessFram? In fact, this list should be plainly listed in your lovely manual.

    3. The notion that you are requesting a release on a book cover is ridiculous. That falls well within "Fair Use" in the copyright world. If you did not know that, I should ask what it is you have been doing all your life?

      Please provide me with your written description of Fair Use of a mere single image under our copyright laws.

      I will need that for future use for future episodes..

    4. Who watches my DVD submissions besides yourself?
  • Question 2:

    In your lovely manual, Section 2.1.3 Prohibited Content, it states...

    Any material which is intended to defraud the viewer or is designed to obtain money by false or fraudulent pretenses, representations or promises.

    I would be enthralled if AccessFram can explain to me (in writing), as though I was a five year old, how any and all "religious" programming does not come under complete fraud. Is religion true?

    Can you answer any of these questions?

    I do believe there is a lot of hypocrisy here.
    But feel free to explain it to me. The fraud behind the fraud?

  • Question 3:

    What is your religion?

    I ask this question of everyone. Just checking religious biases.
