They aren't. If I recall correctly, they're sending e-mails out to people who didn't read the fine print and voiding the soul deal.

I see then. Well, how did they plan on collecting the souls in the first place? Anyway, from now on, I am reading every little detail of every TOS I agree to.

Incase you accidentally sign away your soul?

The initial belief of a "soul" in the religious sense implies naivety but, to then assume that your supposed divine essence could be taken from you because of a written agreement is naive to a point of embarrassing intellectual withdrawal.

It would be the equivalent of someone owning your index fingernail or the cognitive ability to process the colour green. It's not like anyone can actually do anything with it just by claiming ownership of it. Well, that would be my train of thought on it if I somehow found myself believing in such things. On reflection, it seems futile to try and approach this logically since I can only assume you see the word "logic" to resemble something of a curse word by now.

Bes, it was an april fool's prank that was also used to collect data on how the average online shopper doesn't read the terms of service of a retailer, and thus they can be conned in dozens of different ways because of it.

A retailer could say that you can be charged for $30 a month for the next 5 months after purchase, and if you agreed to it they would legally be entitled to your money.

Clicking the "I agree" button when you don't read what you're agreeing to can be disastrous.

There are so many scams out there requiring you to sign a form, and they use roundabout legal jargon and twenty-dollar words to confuse you to the point where you're just like "Whatever, where do I sign?", and when you sign, they get your money and a significant portion of your life, and you can't bring them to court for it because you signed the agreement.
