I've been using AntiOnline email for quite some time now..
There has always been some advertisement on it, which didn't bother me at all, since it is a free service anyway..
But now there was a full screen (F11) popup from http://mail.bigmailbox.com/users/ant...clipgenie.html
And as soon as I clicked [close] and it tried to automaticaly install some clipgenie thingy..
First of all I hate those FULLSCREEN popups.. Second of all I HATE it when software tries to AUTOINSTALL
So I thought well let's see... I sweeped my parent's (WInXP) puter with the latest version of Ad-aware. . . No spyware (just some cookies;)). . .
Allowed the install of ClipGenie. . .
And you guessed it... Spyware (NetworkEssentials and DownloadWare to be exact)
wich remained even after uninstallation of ClipGenie (wich turned out to be some pr0n download app)..
I don't think that kind of agressive advertisement is called for and I hate spyware...
Sorry for this rant.. I just had to get this off my chest..
AntiOnline has no control over Bigmailbox's pop-ups or ads. It's rumored that he's searching for another one. Hopefully he does.
[P.S. - Bigmailbox is the service JP uses for our mail. And there apparently are tons more problems (and far worse ones mind you...) than just this pop-up.]
I have to say I won't give my confidence to a free webmail service that "offers" a porn dialer to run its services. Somehow it doesn't sound very pro to my ears...
I used to use bigmailbox via purebooty.com and one day they just cut off service. So I personally think bigmailbox sucks.
And yeah that full page popup absolutely bites.
<chants> Op-per-a! Prox-o-mi-tron! <etc.>
thanks you guys, i was actually thinking about using it. Thanks but no thanks!
