[opensource-dev] Brown-bag meeting to continue dialog on TVPV

That clear statement is inadmissible by the terms of the TOS §13.3, I'm
afraid, which disclaims such as not being a valid part of the agreement.
No part of the agreement that is made admissible by §13.3 suggests or
implies any commencement date other than immediately.

Nor does it permit any explanation, FAQ, supplement, or discussion to be
considered relevant (except as provided, which none have been).
Boilerplate it may be, but it is binding boilerplate. It could say that
"This agreement grants you a lifetime supply of banana custard", but
that's not actually in there. It would be an assurance that is
disclaimed within the agreement. §10.3 absolves the Lab and its
representatives of charges of fraud if they say something about the
agreements that aren't strictly speaking true, in order to obtain agreement.

As a general rule for contracts and agreements (leaving aside the TPVP,
the TOS, and Linden Lab for a moment), it's widely considered remiss to
act based on inadmissible representations or explanations of a contract
from /the other party to the actual agreement/. That's the sort of thing
lawyers warn you not to do.
