Fluther’s Terms & Conditions are only 205 words long.

So you won’t read them. It’s basically a CYA tactic.

To get bored a just hit “I accept” Some friends an I made an experiment, sending terms and coditions of use of a service we were supposed to offer in an online service, terms included but were not limited to:
wash our car every weekend with a list of products that we were not going to provide
their souls
half of their paychecks
a paragraph of cinderella
and lots of nonsense stuff
Nobody noticed, so the experiment proved that people does not have time to read boring stuff…
