Without getting political . . . please.

I just want to know, is this the first use of such constant name bombardment on US Yahoo email users?

Or am I the only one blessed with the modern-day email equivalent of the proverbial Chinese water-drip-on-forehead torture, showing a single "advertiser" over and over and over?

I thought those side bars were meant to continuously recycle various offers from numerous sponsors and messages.

It's getting to the point that I now only read my email on my iPhone.


PS. If the objective was for the person to take notice, I guess it has finally worked on me.

Now I don't even get all the casino and other marketing banners I used to get in years past.

Don't get to many political ones but I do keep seeing the same advertisement for a big sale at a Ford dealership. The Picture is a chevy camero

Adblock Plus works wonders… I don't see many adverts at all!

Yahoo here in NZ has been the target of a massive spam and hack campaign the last month or two – Count yourself fortunate that you have such a limited problem. :)
