Submission + - Angie's List To Charge User $1000 For Any Post That Runs Afoul of New T&C (angieslist.com) 2

Kagato writes: Customers of Angie's List may end up regretting not reading the new terms and conditions. Effective June 1st they added the following to the terms and conditions: "If You post Content in violation of this Agreement, You agree to promptly pay Angie’s List One Thousand Dollars ($1,000) for each item of Content posted in violation of this Agreement. We may (but shall not be required to) to issue You a warning before assessing damages." It's not clear what the consumer oriented website intends to do with the stipulation, but the rest of the terms and conditions are vague enough that they could attempt to fine members for just about anything they find objectionable.
