Sippey reads the terms of service for the Verisign SiteFinder "service". Surprise! They're draconian!

Draconian, yes. But enforceable, no. See this piece at LawMeme for details, but in brief, precisely because one typically "uses" SiteFinder by making a mistake while typing, it's exceedingly unlikely that a court would treat the terms of service as a binding contract.
