[20060507] New Disclaimer for the Internet
Well, neither really a rant nor funny, but rather the bare, naked truth: Slashdot has an article about a 'new disclaiimer for the internet':

``Business is unpredictable and unsafe. The Internet is dangerous. Many blogs have been written about these dangers, and there's no way we can list them all here. Read the blogs. The Internet is covered in slippery slopes with loose, slippery and unpredictable footing. The RIAA can make matters worse. Patent trolls are everywhere. You may fall, be spammed or suffer a DOS attack. There are hidden viruses and worms. You could break your computer. There is wild code, which may be vicious, poisonous or carriers of dread malware. These include viruses and worms. E-mail can be poisonous as well. We don't do anything to protect you from any of this. We do not inspect, supervise or maintain the Internet, blogosphere, ISP's or other features, natural or otherwise.''

I think this should be brought to every user's attention before they get access to a computer. And re-acknowledged every day. Anyone care to provide stickers, also in translated forms? :)
