I have to agree. It's dumb to expect people to look at what they are
doing and to pay attention. People don't much care if the reason given
is valid for the people who give the "free" service..they just want
those who give the "free" service to make it as braindead an activity as
possible. They don't want to click..backspace..type the alias..send.
It's much to difficult an action to preform. They believe in the Burger
King way..." Your way ..right away."

This is a general thing. Not a dig on any one poster to this list. It's
an everyday occurance. <whatever you like> for dummies rule this planet
and I don't see it changing anytime soon. It's going to get worse now
that Microsoft and any other company can get convicted and not pay for
their crimes. As long as those crimes might hurt the stockmarket. oh
well. Things happen.
