Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I participate in this site?

A. There are several ways to participate:

  • Posting messages: reader posts are the backbone of our site. To post a response to a news item, simply click the "Read More" button and then proceed to the "Reply" button at the end of the story. For more on posting, see the next question.
  • Reading and moderating the postings of others: from time to time you will be given the opportunity to "Moderate" the posts of other users. This means you can assign a score to their posts, based on the thoughtfulness and insight in the post. This will allow other users to prioritize their reading, based upon a post's score. You can also "Meta-moterate," which means that you determine whether another person's moderation was fair or accurate. Meta-moteration can be done at any time by clicking on the "Have You Meta-Moterated Today?" link.
  • Submitting News Stories: we actively welcome contributions of newsworthy events relating to information technology and the law. Simply click the "Submit Story" link in the main Greplaw menu.

Q: What do I need to do to post a message?

A: All you need to do is register a Greplaw account. Please note that we have an absolute privacy policy. Your personal information will never, under any circumstances, be loaned, sold, distributed, or in any other way disseminated by us. We will keep our tacky marketing efforts on the site.

Q: I am a lawyer/law-student/techie/martian. Can I join the Greplaw development team?

A: We are happy to entertain the possibility of bringing on additional help for Greplaw. If you would like to participate, please drop us a line with some information about yourself and how you think you can pitch in.

Q: What kind of new postings do you allow/disallow?

A: We are generally interested in anything having to do with information technology and the law. We are unable to use information about news that is not related to some legal or political issue (But that's what Slashdot.org is for!).


Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition. - Isaac Asimov
