I wonder how deep this was buried in the terms & conditions when people bought their tockets?

It's a fact of human psychology that people don't read T&Cs. Am I really going to spend 30 minutes reading though 15 pages of terms every time I update iTunes, for example. Clearly even the company realise I'm not, which is why the 'accept' button on the first page.

If scientific study shows we won't read these things if we don't have to, and companies give us the option to skip them, surely their legality must be shaky at best?

But seriously, it's like when you install a program and they try to install additional software because they've moved the Accept button to where the OK button is. People flick through an install window: OK, Next, OK, Accept, OK, Accept, Finish.

Now they have spyware.

So they connected their Twitter accounts to their badges when registering it? They're fucking retarded if that's the case.

I'm not sure what they did. I presume, upon registering, they added their twitter account to their Comic Con account, or something.

Is that really what 'tocket' means? Facinating.

What does 'patronisong dockhead' mean then?
