I just noticed the “may contain nuts” type disclaimer on the bottom of the new front page of TNS ...

Information presented on this website is the opinion of the individual contributors and does not reflect the general views of the administrators, editors, moderators, sponsors, Cambridge University or the public at large.

Shouldn’t it read “does not necessarily reflect”  rather than “does not reflect” as some opinions of some contributors may be shared by “ the administrators, editors, moderators, sponsors ...” ?.

It should only read “does not reflect” if all the contributors were considered to be as nutty as a fruitcake.

The opinions I express are not my own!

Good catch.  I've put it on the list of things to be fixed with the site.

"I have opinions of my own - strong opinions. But I don't always agree with them" - George W. Bush (if you believe the internet. I haven't seen the footage of him saying it).

I see this mistake a lot in these disclaimers. "Whatever anybody here says, we believe the opposite". Does that include the stuff that contradicts the other stuff?  ;D
