?I really did wonder whether you were saying something interesting, or just being a prick.?
?Of course it does. What you advertise is what you're legally bound to provide, if and when you make a sale. But that point wasn't my original intent for making that comment.?
Although I agree that one should be legally bound to provide what they promise, the fact remains that we live in an imperfect realm where there is little legal enforcement of what to many appear to be ambiguous concepts. Anyone who works in the IT world is certainly familiar with this problem. And we certainly cannot expect the government, which plays fast and loose with the terminology to enforce adherence to the terms any better. Usually when the government speaks about ?insurance?, what they are really saying is, at best, ?payment plan?, and at worst, ?wealth transfer?.
