Most Disclaimers Are Pointless

October 7, 2013

“For informational purposes only.” “Results may vary.” “Consult your doctor before trying any new form of exercise.”

What’s the point of saying something and then telling people not to listen? Of giving people advice and then telling them not to take it? Even given that frivolous lawsuits happen, do you really need that notice on your site eschewing responsibility for the content of the sites you link to? Are you really afraid of being sued? Sure, there might be times when it matters, but when it doesn’t, it just detracts from your message and undermines your credibility.

A good rule of thumb for writers of all kinds: if it doesn’t add value, don’t include it.
