"mozdev's services and the Site are available only to individuals who 
are eighteen (18) years of age or older."

This is bad news for young MAD rookies, like my son who is only 13. 
Think about people like Gervase Markham, Blake Ross and Ben Goodger, 
they all started at a younger age, right?

"mozdev reserves the right to terminate Your access to the Site for any 
reason or for no reason, on written notice to You, which may be given 
via email or otherwise."

The "for no reason" part is a bit strange, and it sure doesn't make you 
a trustworthy party.

There's also not a single word about projects that are terminated by the 
project owner, and what happens to his code, because a project owner 
should be able to say; it's all over, to everyone.

p.s. are the new terms and policy pages for new and for all current
