Is this for real?

I came across SGblog, a listing for Singaporean blogs and thought about listing there. Then I read through the terms of usages and under item no. 7 I found,

Submission of Content on this Web Site.
By providing any Content to our web site:
(a) you agree to grant to us a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive right and license (including any moral rights or other necessary rights) to use, display, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, distribute, perform, promote, archive, translate, and to create derivative works and compilations, in whole or in part. Such license will apply with respect to any form, media, technology known or later developed;
(b) you warrant and represent that you have all legal, moral, and other rights that may be necessary to grant us with the license set forth in this Section 7;
(c) you acknowledge and agree that we shall have the right (but not obligation), in our sole discretion, to refuse to publish or to remove or block access to any Content you provide at any time and for any reason, with or without notice.

I am not sure, but it seems like by signing on I am giving sgblog the right to do whatever they want with my writing and images. Or am I wrong??

Sounds too one-sided to me...
