different from caveat emptor

I apply it as a general rule whenever anyone wants me to open my wallet.
To a certain degree, yes, but what if the contract as it was signed is violated, not by the signor, but by the one issuing the contract; such as what happened with the COLTS?

Yeah, all I'm saying is that caveat subscriptor doesn't adequately cover all scenarios.

It's just one of many I use in my decision framework.

I also use caveat venditor, si post fata venit gloria non propero, a black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere, amongst others.
Fair enough

I think many of these problems would be reduced if making a purchase didn't require a complete understanding of latin.

This post has made me change all of my feelings about Cryptic, it makes everything better to imagine them as Ferengi...

Anyone who has any understanding of Latin tends to use Latin as a verbal bludgeoning weapon. I myself have only a small understanding from High School and a bit of self teaching. But a doctor... some doctors will spew latin at patients just to be jerks. I just use it to politely beat sense into people
