I have found out the truth about what happens when you decide not to read the TOS. What happens is you break the first and only real law that has ever existed. Harm No One. When it happens you are all contrite and feel stupid, yet most of us never form the habit of reading TOS's on new websites we join.
For me the unvarnished truth is I am mentally lazy. Yep it isn't pretty except for the fact that it is true. So every time I inadvertently harm someone I pay not only what ever price it will cost me to make it right I also pay this huge price in self image and major league embarrassment.
So I have decided to help my fellow steemians (Really myself "shh you'll wake up the kids") to at least read the TOS starting with the FAQ's and avoid being, or feeling like the mule below: As a form of penance and the beginning of a new habit.
I will add my understanding and thoughts about it along the way!
Not the whole thing, but a small piece at a time and only now and then.
Oh yes you are welcome to give me your opinions criticism and corrections as you see fit.
Contrary to what most would do, I am going to start with the Disclaimer. It is actually the last part of the FAQ's. You can read what it says in its entirety below: However I am not going to spruce it up at all, because it is about truth, justice, and the steemit way.
