Terms of Service Erased from Signup Page

I just posted on the MU forums to get feedback on our new site and got the following deconstructive criticism ...

I just erased all of your ToS from the sign up page. :slight_smile:
(You may want to search the premium forums as that issue's been discussed a couple of times.)

Sure enough, the TOS field and checkbox are now gone. Nice, huh?

Anyway, I just searched these forums and found no reference to the issue. Any ideas?
