Pet Peeve of the Day: Which one first?

How about -- the Fine Print. Okay, so commercials tend to have fine print, and nobody really reads it. It's because of some law or other, right?

But, seriously, this has gone too far. There's been a few for financial services companies lately -- one for ditech.com comes to mind -- with pages of fine print. Since they give you about 0.37 seconds to read each page, it's entirely impossible to read unless you've tivo'ed it, and then bothered to rewind it, just to watch the commercial. Oh, no, wait, the font is so small that the garbage resolution of the TV makes it illegible anyway. They could be saying "side effects include severe gastrointestinal distress and being attacked by martians."
Also, if you haven't played Nethack lately, you should get back to it. If you have never played it, you're seriously missing out. None of that "tile" crap, neither. It must be played in its full ANSI goodness.
