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 agreeing to?

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.
