I love the “notices” that come on the bottom of email messages. Many of them (most) are so farcical and ridiculous as to be laughable. Like this one, which is typical:
Notice: The information contained in this message and any attachments is privileged and confidential and protected from disclosure. Any dissemination, distribution or copying of this communication is strictly prohibited.
Of course they are completely useless and unenforceable, but everyone insists on using them anyway.
And then a person I know sent me the following “claimer” which I love:
Claimer: Views presented in this article probably or definitely allude to people real, unreal, imaginary, virtual and otherwise. Any harm or libel cast on people dead, alive or transient is either intentional or otherwise. The views expressed in this blog are solely those of the author, however he refuses to take responsibility for said views and believes the use of "airquotes" to be a birthright. Claims not included in this claim are also claimed.
Perfect. Love it.
