Comcast Corporation Complaint - An Advertising Haven That Is Unwanted!
MASSACHUSETTS, MASSACHUSETTS -- I am writing this review for three reasons. First I want to know if there is anyone else out there that finds the advertising banner on the side of the email screen intrusive and aggravating. Secondly, I want to encourage others to report this problem to the proper governmental authority. I am in the process of following through with this and when I find the right place to complain I will come back here and leave the address.
Lastly, I just want to vent. I contacted Comcast to ask if there was a way to permanently block or hide this banner and they said no. This kind of advertising is new because it comes up on the side of my email(my personal space!) that I pay for and interferes with the peace of mind that I need to read my emails. The distraction of the flashing advertisement is not only very annoying but I also think it's flat out wrong for Comcast to have allowed advertisers to do this. It's the same kind of tactics that the telemarketers used and now they are legally limited to what they can do because of their overly aggressive practices. I also feel that I have a right to privacy with my email and I think that these advertisements in my private space are intrusive and take away my right to privacy. Besides, I know that I can go to Hotmail or G-mail to set up another account but why should I be put through that aggravation.
So the big question here is: what IS my space and who can interfere with it legally? My right to privacy is at issue here and if you also feel the same then please leave a note telling me so. We can stop this intrusion on our privacy like we did with the telemarketers and soon to be spammers. We can stop it by socking it to them in their pocketbooks, legally!
Thanks for listening :)
