ZOMG! TEH FAIL!
Well, it's a free services and a damn good one at that price, so fair enough.

I have been following with interest BTs plans to incorporate Phorm's targeted ad software into the BT Broadband package.
As I do not consider myself to be anyone's "target market" and value my privacy highly, I would be grateful if BT could confirm either:
1. That opting out of the service will mean that none of my traffic will go anywhere near any hardware or software owned, operated or supplied by Phorm or their subsidiaries.
I'm sure they'll enjoy ignoring that.
People **do not want to be advertised at**. It doesn't matter if it's targeted or not. Do people watch TV just to catch the latest ads? No, they bugger off to the kitchen to make a cuppa while that ads are on because that way they're not wasting their time.
Honestly, I'm seriously considering having "I Am Not A Target Market" tatooed under my forehead. Right underneath uk.gov's barcode.
I'm sure Paris will opt-in though - she thinks the BT Broadband ads are a genuine soap.
Where does it end?
Hi Mrs Bloggs.
What's that you say?
You want to buy a computer to speak to your grandchildren in Australia?
And you've never used a computer before?
Well, here's a nice one here.
Unfortunately, we can't give you one with an operating system on it, so you can choose between all the systems listed on this sheet.
You don't know what an operating system is?
Well, I don't think I should sell you a computer then, in case some jumped up obnoxious fifteen year old linux weenie accuses us of N0t b33ing teh l33t!!11!one! and takes us to court. Bye, now.
I don't think lack of queues is representative of gamers' lack of interest in Halo 3. I think it more accurately reflects the insane prices high street shops charge for new releases. Most people I know who are buying it have pre-ordered it only and paid as much as a tenner less.
 Although, I must confess that my own personal interest in Generic Sci-Fi Shooter Rev C is less than - well - none.
