Note to an antivirus software vendor

Throwing up a warning on the screen that the annual subscription is about to expire is one thing.

It should not be two things, every day, for three goddamn weeks.

If I have anything to say about it — and we'll see if I do — the site license will be allowed to expire and you'll have lost twenty users.

(Hint: Launching a Web browser ad lib is the sort of activity one expects from the very scumware you claim to be preventing.)

Hows that for a little sypathetic curse throwing?
