Dear ProZ members:

I wanted to wish you and yours a "Merry Christmas and Happy New
Year"... I ran it past my lawyers, and this is what came back:

I hereby forward the message below, subject to the qualifications contained therein and appertaining thereto, but not so limited.

Cheers (unqualified)!

From me ("the wishor") to you ("the wishee"), please accept without
obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally
conscious, socially responsible, politically correct, low stress,
non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday,
practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion
of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the
religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice
not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I wish you a financially successful, personally fulfilling and medically
uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar
year 2004, but with due respect for the calendars of choice of other
cultures or sects, and having regard to the race, creed, colour, age,
physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform or sexual
preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting you are bound by these terms that:

1.This greeting is subject to further clarification or withdrawal.
2.This greeting is freely transferable provided that no alteration shall be
made to the original greeting and that the proprietary rights of the wishor
are acknowledged.
3.This greeting implies no promise by the wishor to actually
implement the inferences contained in this correspondence.
4.This greeting may not be enforceable in certain jurisdictions and/or the
restrictions herein may not be binding upon certain wishees in certain
geographical locations.
5.This greeting is warranted to perform as reasonably as may be expected
within the usual application of good tidings, for a period of one year or
until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first.
6.The wishor warrants this greeting only for the limited replacement of
this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wishor.

Yours truly,

P.S. I won't bore you with the fine print. Bob
