Full Title or Meme

User Intent implies free will exercised by a fully informed and competent user.

Context

  • In the past User Intent was inferred from postings of Privacy Policy written in dense legalese supported by a Contract of Adhesion which was typically supplied as a Terms of Service which were typically invoked by references with a URL to more dense legalese. Some Web Sites realizing that they were on shaky legal ground began requiring users to page though a long PDF of the Terms of Service as proof that the users were fully informed. Everyone involved in that stratagem knew it as a sham, but continued it none-the-less.
  • Meaning of intent: Intention purpose meaning (from the French)[1]
