Do you believe that your philosophical objections to the language absolves
you as a customer from the minimal due dilligence of knowing what you are
Find me a registrar that DOESN'T have that kind of language in their user
agreements, then tell me if anyone wishing to do any kind of e-commerce
has a choice.
I've gone off on a tear about this before: A registrar has a license to
print money. Boilerplate user agreements that leave the user zero recourse
are the standard. I haven't seen a registrar yet that doesn't have this
kind of verbiage completely freeing them from liability for *any* action
taken on a domain registration, including none.
