Well, it is legalese

Can someone who speaks American legalese explain what "the content is accurate" means? Is "accurate" used in its original but these days uncommon sense of "done with care" or in its usual modern sense of "correct"? If it is the former I can make sense of it, but if it means "correct" I cannot make head or tail of it.

Since it is legalese, "accurate" is whatever gets them off the hook in a libel suit.

So if you post something defamatory, and the offended party sues dpreview, they can say that you told them (implicitly) that it was "accurate".
