My Eyes, My Eyes!
Okay. Yahoo Mail I've just about had it. Must you continue to bombard your unsuspecting users with such annoying and personal images plastered everywhere? Those banner ads and sidebar ads are driving me nuts--if it's not the "plump" lip ads showing a woman who appears to be suffering the effects of 18 bee stings, it's images of pulsating bulging abdomens and jiggling bat-wing arms; or sometimes it's pictures of ugly stretch marks or ads showing teeth which look like they came straight out of a horror movie prop room. I'm just trying to read my mail, for goodness sake, without being accosted on all sides by what amounts to virtual roadkill. I spend half my time reading my email while shielding my view, ala Phoebe on Friends, "My eyes! My eyes!"
It's enough to make a girl switch to gmail.
Thank you. I feel better now.
