image for The problem of reading Terms & Conditions "Reading T&Cs is for night owls ONLY!"

This is getting ridiculous... every time that I load a new piece of software onto my computer, I have to plough through reams of small print. Most of it is written in legal jargon, which I suppose, is intentional to cover the various websites that we use!

For my convenience, I usually print out the terms and conditions for each site by cutting and pasting them into a Word document and increasing the size of from 4 point Times New Roman to 24 point Arial. It makes interesting(?) reading and I normally go to bed reading such stuff and I am usually asleep within minutes, however, I am starting to get nightmares. The main thing I am on the look-out for is any mention of money.

At the moment, I am perusing the T & C's of Fazebook, because I'm sure that they will start charging for the privilege of using the site in the near future, although I could be mistaken because I have spent lots of valuable spoof writing time away from site reading such legal diarrhoea, thereby confusing them with someone else.

I am very surprised at how many people just tick that they have read the T & C's before joining.

How many of you have done that?

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
