Accurate view of a notary?

A forum post on the web says a notary certifies the signer's identity, willingness to sign (absence of coercion) and awareness of the import of the document.

Huh? Do you question notary clients about what the document means?

If so, you may want to check your state's notary law. It's probable that you're exceeding your authority.

Generally a notary is not concerned with what is being signed (if all the blanks are filled in) but only with who.
