time for a little rant before bed. about something german...
Is anyone else fed up with GMX Email? ("german mail exchange" - the free german email provider)
First you have to log in with your FULL email address - which you never have to do with Yahoo and co.
And everytime after you have logged in they ask you to click on buttons to verify if your "personal details" have changed (meaning your "interests", so they can adjust the spam advertising crap they mail to you and the pop ups that appear when you log in). You only have two options for this: "update now" or "remind me again later". The thought that I maybe dont want to be reminded again later doesnt or rather won`t occur to them. Very rude.
Then when you`ve got past all that you are accosted by these extremely irritating dancing advertisments all round the sides of the webpages - and which you can`t even switch off or click at to go away and lose themselves.
GMX send you loads of spam crap themselves. And not only that. Ive had porn ads displayed next to my emails as well. And no, I dont think thats funny - not when Im in a business environment and checking my business email.
I really think this email provider is the pits.
OK, yes I do use Yahoo as well. But the GMX account Ive had for several years now and need it for my work, so not so easy to switch. When I first discovered it, the service was reasonable.
But the irritants mentioned above seem to be getting worse and making it almost intolerable to use! GMX is becoming a very unpleasant site to use. Plus all the "content" schnick-schnack" - most of which is sheer eye-candy junk of the worst kind. Anyone else feel the same way about GMX?
Sometimes though I think the whole internet is eventually just going to flush itself down the pan in a great steaming pile of spam, viruses, dancing advertisment graphics, popups and sundry trash.
We need to return to a non-commercial internet - some hopes - or at least - create some kind of alternative internet. With an alternative search engine. Not google. Alternative, usable email, which doesnt come with all this junk. And free of viruses and spam..
Oh well, carry on dreaming. Time for bed said Zebbede..
