Thanks. Let me add some comments and were it goes. I'll precede your lines with ">"

Basically true. But this also would prevent to name an abuser.
So I guess this would be closer to board:
We never sell, trade, or give away any personal information about registered members, ever. However should you be out to seriously disrupt this forum (having opposing views is not regarded as on itself as being disruptive) you will be made known the the forum users at large.
>We can't tell who you are because you came to our web site, and we can't tell what page you're on right now.
I can see when someone is browsing this part of the forum or is in his/her mailbox. But what they see I don't know (and don't want to know).

This may be daft coming from me but are you sure about the last one?
