    Free e-cards websites - care needed

    I was festively trawling for free Christmas e-cards and came across the EULA for MyFunCards.

    The brief summary of what gets downloaded is probably enough to put anyone off, but read the acres/hectares of text which follows!

    Makes you realise that paying
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    Wow, and to think that at one time I considered 'Ask Jeeves' to be somewhat respectable. Unfortunately, this EULA language has pretty much become standard -- the company and all related parties can not be held accountable; even if they could they are pretty much absolved of any damages; and all rights to venue choice are forfeited should you still insist on complaining.

    The price of freedom is eternal vigilance... I guess that applies to <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>dom too.

    Yeah, the whole business of electronic greeting cards is one big danger zone. I stopped using any of 'em a few years ago when a certain <big>very popular</big> greeting card company (USA and internationally, I think) demonstrated that you would be inundated with spam for ages. The only way I ever got rid of it was changing from DSL to cable and a new email domain!
