Terms of Semantics

From the “just throwing it out there” dept. in cooperation with the “I’m too lazy to do some research into existing efforts” dept. It is generally known that people rarely read all terms of use and privacy statements of all involved parties providing a service. South Park used that knowledge as a storyline in The […]
