Do you already now “I have read and agree to the Terms” is the biggest lie on the web. We [terms of service: didn't read] aim to fix that.


"no class yet" means -they are still reading, reading, reading ...?

@Federkiel they are still experimenting (and yes, need more data == more reading 😂 ) with the classification:

Oh crap -- I read through the example, nodding knowingly, until I got to Stack Overflow ...

hoooo, and I've been using that happily for some years, completely unaware. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a good alternative anywhere... at least I'm not putting private info there but still, not happy news.

@Mr_Teatime oh yes, i was - honestly - suprised by the details of stackoverflows tos too. Now I'm wondering if I could do without them, or perhaps at least improve my privacy (or boycott their business model) a bit, by fetching their sites without a full-fledged browser.. 🙈 Got now account/private information posted there anyway.

@krobin I used to love how my bank would frequently have "Your banking agreement with CIBC has changed. Press this button to continue" at the teller machines. To get at my money I had to technically agree to an update I couldn't even see at that terminal. Also doesn't an "agreement" require two parties? I can never understand how this is legal, because it's not even grammatically sensical.

@dlek 🤦‍♀️ Did you ever try to get your money at a counter and discuss about your consent/agreement with them? At least make them explain what they changed? In Germany most (or a lot of) ATMs are still at bank branches where you could interact with a human during the day. I recently received ~40 printed pages of updated tos from my bank.

@krobin To be honest I never even tried. I have never had any faith that bank would ever take such inquiries or concerns seriously. I have long since switched banks.
