What I'm reading out of this is:

1. We can make changes anytime
2. We won't notify you of changes
3. Your responsible for noticing if we change anything
4. Accessing the site (presumably even to view the ToS) indicates
acceptance of new terms

Sounds like a very bad policy to me, even though I see it in a lot of a
sites I don't think that makes it more acceptable. You can blindly enter a
new ToS that gives Wordpress rights to your content without ever knowing in
this scenario, and it makes their entire service into a potential quicksand.

Added what I think is the correct case, as well as the relevant excerpt. The policy seems to have changed since this point was originally written. Marking as pending..
