Artists, their ToS and commissioners' behaviour

This issue has already been widely discussed within the community. Yet, I still have one question to ask:

How to make commissioners read our ToS?

I'll take, for example, my last finished commission.

Link (warning! contains frontal nudity) -> http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3365298
Commissioner -> http://www.furaffinity.net/user/shadowulf/
His journal entry about me being a jerk -> http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/1186745/

Everything went smoothly from the beginning. The commissioner requested a picture, I approved his request, received money, sent him the sketch. He APPROVED the sketch and told me to go on. And what do I got afterward when the picture was already finished? Yes, he wanted me to edit it.
I always feel like a total shit-bag when buyers pretend to have the upper hand over me, even if it's stated in my ToS that "There are 2 stages where you can ask for your picture to be edited"... "Sketch (digital and traditional)" and "Flat colors (only digital, except anime portraits)".

I would appreciate it if you will share your experience.



I had to edit this picture because... Well, I was made a total jerk as it seems =/
