i almost wonder what would happen if this was added to TOS

" within 2 weeks of you signing up we will send the boys round to remove all your tv and computer equipment"

just to see how many actually do read the TOS and spot this.

I think this is where some business have their customers 'by the balls' so to speak and can pretty much add anything they want to the T&Cs knowing the customer most likely will not look and realize until it is put forward to them ...

I believe Apple did a prank like that. I believe the prank was that apple would be granted permission over your soul upon agreeing to the terms.

I won't lie, I've signed up for stuff without reading the TC but sometimes depending on the length will read it through. I normally read it through if it is important. I don't know anyone who hasn't signed up for something without reading the TC. I'm sure most of us here are guilty of that lol

It would be interesting to calculate how much productivity time would be lost if everyone actually took the time to not only read but to also consider the implications of agreeing to some of these extensive terms and conditions.

Funny story.

But, really, in our platform analytics we can see that users often spend some time on the ToS page. I assume they look for things like refund policies, support policies, SLAs, etc.
