Welcome to Melinda’s Backups! This site is a friendly and safe place for people of all ages to gather and share their support for Melinda. It is friendly and safe, in part, because the site operates by a set of rules that every member needs to understand and comply with. Please review these terms carefully. If you do not agree to comply with these terms, you cannot become a member of the site.

Otherwise, your IP address will be limited to one user account and for personal entertainment purposes only. You agree never to share this confidential information with anyone else. Allowing another person to log onto the site with your username and password is a violation of this Agreement, and may result in termination of your right to use the site.
