Do you ever just click without reading the fine print? I am wondering a few things about the old "Click here to signify that you have read and understood the blah blah blah" directive, particularly the type found in software downloads/updates.

- What percent of people actually read these documents (with or without understanding them)?
- When people are forced to make this type of choice - a lot of work or a little lie for the same payout - does it effect other behaviors? Is this just an example of ego depletion?
- Assuming there is a relatively low percentage, do we know if this type of widespread entrapment is affecting the way we generally value the "fine print"?
Anecdata welcome. [By answering below, you affirm that you have read and fully-understood my questions.]
