Nothing on this site or the communications of its builder should be construed as advice of any sort. We leverage LLMs which have non-deterministic outputs, and decline all liability for their outputs. Treat this website as offered for entertainment and informational purposes only.

We might change these terms without notice in the future, for example by including them in a more formal set of terms and policies.
