    I began on the internet back around 1998. It was my job to write those T&C's. At first I was kind of hurt that no one would read them. I spent about 40 hours doing one once and all anyone ever asked was "is it good?".
    I think it is kind of like enjoying a hot dog. You do not want to know what is in it.

      Thanks Ericdierker , for the answer.  This is interesting to know that writing those T & C' s, was your job. Must be tough writing it all the way.

    That was my new years resolution for one year...and I broke it within a day. I don't think I'll be attempting to unless I really need to.

    Even the website owners might not know their own Terms and Conditions. One must see the Comedy Movie - Oh My God popular as OMG. It is all about 'Terms and Conditions'. I am thinking of making a Hub on the Title.
