I’m not a lawyer, but I’m looking through the keyboard maestro site and documentation now, trying to see if there’s a disclaimer that would cover your concerns. If not, you could include one in your macro posts, and in the macros themselves.
Not sure such action is necessary with the type of people who would seek this type of product but I understand your concern.
I see. It does read like Peter is putting all liability on the creator (you), as it should be, but, I think with a similar disclaimer in both your posts and your macros you can be reasonably comfortable posting here. I think the last bullet point is the most salient:
you have, in the case of Content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by Stairways Software or otherwise.
Again, no experience in this, just following along.
