TOS;DR may sound useful but it's now obsolete since most terms of service have become more readable. It's best to read the official TOS instead of third-party resources.

But most people aren't going to cover the nook and corner of every service they sign-up for. TOSDR provides a brief summary of what you are about to get yourself into. Generating awareness is more important than convincing yourself that every person is as big of a nerd as you are.
