Here is an excerpt from the disclaimer for a mailing list I host which
deals with fireworks and other pyrotechnics. This has NOT been
checked by a lawyer. You are welcome to reuse this text as you see
Posts distributed by the PML mailing list should not be taken as
inherently sound advice. All PML information is for educational
purposes only. Any judgment regarding the validity or utility of
information distributed by this mailing list must be made by the
reader. There are substantial risks to health, property and general
safety whenever pyrotechnic materials are handled. Misapplication or
abuse of pyrotechnics can result in serious consequences for yourself
and or others who may be affected by your activities.
Information distributed by this mailing list is not confirmed or
endorsed by the mailing list administrator. Posts are composed by
individual PML subscribers and forwarded to the list by automatic
software. Readers are advised to use appropriate caution if they
choose to apply any of the techniques discussed on this mailing list.
Don't presume that a technique is reliable/accurate/sound just because
someone posted it to PML. Read the follow ups. If a truly bad idea
is posted, chances are that several people will point out the problem.
You are the only one who can be responsible for both your own safety
and the safety of others who might be affected by your actions.
