The Fine Print

This arrived in my mailbox today, tucked in with the rest of the flotsam accompanying my phone bill.The page measures 14" x 7," folded to create four panels of 3.5"x 7" each. It's printed front and back in a point size approaching nil. It is nigh impossible to read, which is, of course, intended as well as ironic, coming as it does from a communications company.

Its purported purpose is to inform me of my privacy rights with respect to my telephone and internet accounts. It's actual purpose is to obfuscate, frustrate, and irritate. So far it's succeeding wildly.
