To click or not to click.


From time to time I log into hotmail/livemail (20-10-2003) because … Well there was this time that I ran with my windows open and live.com simply comes with the territory. 😆

But!

Did you know that email used to revolve around text ONLY messages?
Which is a principle I strictly adhere to (attachments NOT included)
Therefore its the main reason why I’ve turned off html view in my client (thunderbird) on PURPOSE!
Now hotmail hits us with ‘a nice new feature‘ (which I for obvious reasons have turned off the moment I found out about it.)
“Active views” (activex comes to mind) and “Interactive email” (on whose behalf?)

While; I read the explanation here: http://windowslivehelp.com/solution.aspx?solutionid=890af0b6-4d31-410f-8857-ca0bc730c19f
Do; appreciate the attempt for the concept(s) set forth herein. But do not partake init!
The reason: I like to make up my own mind on my behalf and choose whether I want “to click or not to click” (which is THE question of all ages)
Done!
