General disclaimer

In its ambitious mission of documenting the discussion of all human knowledge, The Lecture List contains many thousands of lectures on a vast array of topics. A relatively small fraction of these topics are frequently censored by educational, governmental, corporate, parental and other filtering schemes.

  • Some lectures which appear on The Lecture List discuss words or language that are considered profane, vulgar or offensive by some readers.
  • Many lectures will contain frank discussion of controversial topics. Some subjects that are discussed have criminal applications in some jurisdictions. Others contain information on dangerous or otherwise risky activities
  • It should be noted that as The Lecture List is open to contributions from the public, there may at any time be 'graffiti' present on The Lecture List.
  • There may be medical, legal or other information that is normally also the subject of professional opinions

The Lecture List's current policy is to include such content, provided it breaches neither any of our existing Lecture List policies and guidelines (especially The Lecture List Neutral point of view), nor the law of The District of Columbia in the United States, where the server is hosted.

The Lecture List contains references to lectures on obscure topics that would not be covered in a conventional listing service.
