Speaking of legalese that no one reads…

Yesterday, I happened to read the legal disclaimers and warnings on the bottom of an email exchange. It was the first time I had actually looked at them, and I wondered “aloud” if anyone reads them.

Nope, said an associate. We just put them in emails to cover us in case we screw up.

XKCD added some further light on such disclaimers, pointing out that even elevators carry disclaimers…that it is unlikely that anyone reads.
