Neither do I, this also applies when you purchase books or any popular products out there in the market.

It is an irony for the fact that you only blame them when something got screwed up. :?

I can just imagine, "Thanks for accepting! You just gave us your house! You are generous. Please leave, we will soon be here." That always is a great joke when it comes to accepting it without reading it.

Somehow I don't believe a mouse click has any legal weight (like a written signature would).

HERE HERE!

By the way, I occasionally read the "Aggreement" purely because i'm bored. And you really should read Windowz's aggreement. The latest version states that a if you get a new motherboard you need to get a new licence as it constitutes a new PC!!! I mean like, seriously how can that be fair?

Personally I also read instructions occaisionally - the Windows 98 instruction book is hilarious! The way it describes the "mouse" pmsl!

No, I don't read them. If I'm installing a program on my computer I either a) want to have that particular program, or b) need that particular program. Either way, the program is to be installed on my computer, and that's not going to happen unless I click "I Agree", so might as well just go ahead and do that. It's not like if I find something I don't agree with I'll be able to contact the developers and negotiate a way around that for the most part.
