Interesting. Just gave them a quick look.

Bearing in mind that it's a gaming service, they looked fair enough.
What were your objections?

It's not a gaming service, it's a collaboration platform (originally one for gaming, but that's not how it's used in this context). A few things:

1. They have a very broad commercial license to anything that people say, including in private chats.

2. You warrant that you own the copyright on everything you upload. If you copy any GNUstep code into the chat, for example, you are breaking the T&Cs.

3. They are limited to non-commercial use, which is poorly defined but probably precludes anyone building products on GNUstep (at the very least) from using it to discuss GNUstep without violating the T&Cs.
