I love the idea that they use "targetted advertising" as a Selling Point -
LMAO ...If I'm obliged to see adverts, I would rather they were for things
I have absolutely NO interest in (tins of spam, penis expanders and things
like that) ;)

And HOW do they work out what my interests are? ...They read

struggle on with POP3 ...Ooohhh the pain - LOL
