I wonder what fun secret messages we could find hidden within the Logos EULA if we did this to it?

Who knows what other messages are hidden inside those agreements.

I don't think I'm in the minority of people who don't read the agreements fully before choosing "I Agree".

Is Logos out to collect the souls of users? 

This game company wrote the EULA so that clicking agree turned your soul over to the company. 7000+ failed to check the opt-out box.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse they say....but thank God there is grace. I know "that devil" is tricky but I am quite sure this is not proper soul collecting rules. Devil Stick out tongue Lightning No Soul for you, mine belongs to God!

Well, here's a hidden message in the EULA Summary:

The short version is this: "The license goes with the user. Every user must purchase their own package. If you have a work machine and a laptop and they are both yours for your personal use, you may load it on both for your personal use - because the license goes with the user." Can you purchase one package and have two people use it? No. The license goes with the user. The license is a single user license.

All licenses are single human being licenses. We do not offer site-licenses, shared licenses, co-op licenses, library licenses or multi-user licenses. A church or company may be the purchaser and thus legal owner of the license grant, but may only allow one human being to be the beneficiary of this license grant.

-------

If you read the bold letters, it says: The Seahawks will win.

Weird. When I pulled it up, there were different letters in bold...this is what I saw:

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

I didn't think they would after the 1st half, but the 2nd half was a totally different game.

Actually, I found a message in just the first paragraph:

We all are granted just the right amount of time for what God calls us to do with our lives, but some of us waste the time we have. Guilty as charged.
