People can even sign away their lives without knowing it if its included in the terms and conditions. Thats why theyre caught up in messes that are irrecoverable!

Reading all terms of services is very important in hosting business because you can go against a term unknowingly which can cost suspension or termination of your service.

That's the reason we always recommend our existing and potential customers to read TOS & SLA carefully when they come to our Live chat...So it also helps us to avoid further confusions.

I think " I agree to TOS" is the most told lie in the world.

Does any of us read the contract we take with our cell phones? I don't know anyone who does. I think it depends on how much money you are about to kiss goodbye too. BTW, Steve-Hostirian, you are a hero.

And furthermore, they say that some of the next biggest employment opportunities will come for those who know how to read/negotiate T&Cs/SLAs etc.

What a funny prank! But yes, goes to show that no one really ever reads TOS unless it involves the refund policy. Unfortunately too many times people read it only when it's too late and they're already in violation, yet still try to dispute claiming they "didn't know."

Have you guys ever seen a creative commons license? ITs a very common (pun intended) license used by open source software. Anyway one of the interesting things about this license is that there is a human readable version of it. A version summarizing the license in plain English:

http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/us/

A smart host would make a similar version of their TOS so that laymen could understand it.

A lot of hosts have TOS's a 5 year old could read and understand, but people still don't read them.

Some people simply do not care to take the time to read the fine print, TOS's, etc.

Quite interesting, should awaken the people who don't read TOS and other important things while making online purchases.

I find this very funny and the only way to solve this would be if people just read the EULA's. It will never happen in this day and age. People just want to get the the box, click that they read, and buy whatever it is they want.
