Comments/message boards

iDB Services contain comment sections (a.k.a. message boards). We do not actively monitor these comments and the information on them is for entertainment purposes only.

We use email validation on our message boards in order to reduce “comment spam.” These email addresses will not be shared with any third party and not used for any other purpose. In short, we will not send you unwanted emails.
