Truth be told I really don't like reading TOS before joining a site, but I need to to fully understand if I'm going to get any benefits from joining. I don't live in America so I really do need to read the TOS since most sites based their TOS on the US terms. When I get lazy I just use the find function of my browser and search for "U.S.A. Residents" and if it finds these words I most often don't join the site. LOL

Honestly? I don't read TOS when i join some sites. I just read their TOS when I have some curiosity with them and want to broaden my mind.

I usually read the terms and conditions before joining. But there have been times when I have registered without reading.

I must admit that I rarely take the time to do this either. For the most part, I simply assume based on the type of sight it is, what I can and can not do. Most of the time, I do pretty good with this method.

Yes,just for formality sake,i believe more in a personal communication with the admin. preferably through telephone before i join any of them. Anyway most of them do not respect their rules and regulations anymore,if not i won't have lost millions of dollars to those dirty suckers!It's painful you know,but life continues. It's even more painful when you report them to the autorities and nothing is done about it,where are we going?

I usually just scan over it real quick, just try to catch the important things, not waste my time reading every little detail.

I always read the terms of service and the privacy policy as well as usually look over the faq section. Ti many time you will be signing up for something that only sends out junk if you do not.

I usually do. It determines whether I will join the site. If it requires that I do a certain amount of activity and if they decide I have to join certain things then I will not join that site. I have only a limited amount of time to spend on thee programs as I want to devote my time to mylot, writing my novel, singing, and learning Italian and Spanish. So I have to know what to do and what not to do, when they pay, how they pay, and how long it takes to get the cash.

It's too long for me to read and I understand what they wanted to say that profanity, illegal, copyrighted contents are not allowed and the list goes on.
