Classmates.com can eat my ass!

Angry classmates dot comIn theory, Classmates.com is a neat idea. You can hook up with people you used to know. Fun. Or not. 🙂

I did sign up as a free member knowing full well that some of the “premium” features would be unavailable to me. I did so under the assumption that Classmates.com wanted me to check out their service and, hopefully, later on decide to whip out my wallet and fork over some scrilla.

I have to admit. I wasn’t so moved. I was quite content to remain a free member.

Then I started receiving these ominous notifications. “Someone” had signed my “guestbook.” I was asked, “Don’t you want to know who it is???”

WTF? I visited the site and tried to find a way to view the identities of people, or at least get a preview of their comments. (How do I know it isn’t spam? If I pay to see spam Classmates.com is going to have a much bigger problem on their hands.)

Nope. No dice. They are unwilling to give you even a tiny glimpse.

Assholes.

So now people from my past could be under the assumption that I’m ignoring them and don’t care since I was dumb enough to sign up for a free service. That’s just swell.
