it's not all that often that i get such a margin of time, look you see, to be bored enough to engage in some sort of conversation that has little point and less merit to it. through fortune or miscalculation, though, such an opportunity came up during the course of a week.
as a service, or if you like favour, for a friend i find myself from time to time clicking on those annoying adverts you seen on some websites. if you do click on them what happens is that the person who owns the site gets a few coins of money off of whoever paid to have the advert there.
i was then going through one such site that i saw and clicked on as a consequence of all this stuff above. having a gander at the terms and conditions of the site threw up quite an interesting bit of text.....
the conversation, predictably perhaps, did not go ever so well.
yeah, if you can't be bothered to read the above - and i do not blame you for not doing so - the basics were a dispute over BlackBerry featuring on the site, and when some acceptance of this fact came all that happened was a valiant effort to not answer the question.
there's quite a beneficial point to this, i suppose. time and again we all just click "yeah, sure, i read them terms and conditions" without even looking before we accept a web based or found service. often it's the case that we get caught out by something hidden in those terms and conditions, or EULA things if you prefer. goodness knows what sinister things Apple have hidden in theirs, considering just how awful their open front end approach to customers is.
it's not unreasonable, then, to expect a company to know exactly what's in their own terms and conditions. not so this company, alas.
no, of course i never had any intention of using the above, or any other such "online trading system". if i felt a need to invest in such a system, i would rather take the money outside and burn it, for that would be more entertaining that bearing witness to it all going off and making someone else tres rich. i am sure they collar quite a few people with their ways, though..
also, when you see those annoying ads on websites you like, click on them. it costs the company that puts them up there money, and it makes money for the person who runs the site. no, you'll never see those ads here, unless the people that own all of this Blogger thing decide that actually, yes, all sites will now have it.
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
