...crapsteaks smothered in dictators

Oh how I love advertising.

I recently sent an email from my hotmail to my personal work email. When I opened up the email at work the next day, it had "Get in touch with thousands of singles in your area" at the footer.

I never gave permission for msn to attach advertisements to the bottom of my emails! I don't want them to pimp my correspondence. What next? "This email was brought to you by the Man at the Pub and Swingin Sexy Singles Chess Club. Join today!" That'll look really professional when sending my CV for the next job application.

But if they have to, where's my friggin cut?

I want them to advertise and tell me when they are bringing back Mello Yello...

Not before

My computer keeps sending me messages about what celebrities are up to. I don't know these people, I'm sure I don't like them and I don't think they get pictures of me popping up on their computers telling them what I've been doing lately. It wouldn't make much of a headline but that's not the point. 'Lorna Cooked Fish for Dinner, get the latest on, see how they like it.

Google does the same thing. How do you turn it off? Looks pretty unprofessional frankly. And I AM sending out CV's . .maybe that's why I'm averaging an interview a fortnight out of 10 applications a week!

yes, they've got a bloody cheek!

saying that
is it targeted at people based on browser history?
perhaps they think you'd be interested in joining a dating agency based on all that porn you're surfing?!?!
