  7. Theft is an unfortunate fact that happens. There is nothing we here at The Lightpost can do to fully prevent this, nor can we be held accountable for anything that may turn up missing. However, you can help keep our community theft-free by NOT being a thief and by turning in anyone who is! Anyone caught stealing will automatically have their membership terminated.

  10. Finally, we have an awesome staff at The Lightpost. The job of our Community Manager is to manage this fantastically innovative community.
