Actually, I removed my tin foil hat long enough to order online – but I was able to place the order without agreeing to the site’s terms and conditions.
After actually reading a few of these contracts, I’m pretty quick at skimming them for certain things. Sure enough, they would like to retain ownership of any software included in the shipment.
So I used a nifty Firefox extension called Tamper Data, which lets you view and alter the contents of an HTML form, after you press the submit button, but before it gets sent back to the website. I found a field named “agreedtoterms” and changed its value from “true” to “nope”. Usually a website will verify such fields once they receive the submitted form, but this place didn’t.
