Both my parents share the same name, David. Both are still alive living in a remote island of Kenya feeding wild fish. I have 12 brothers and 22 sisters. Two are from a twice married, once returned step dad's uncle's best friend's mate's sister's married-in uncle that isn't really their uncle.

Too much? really who uses their real infomation to sign up to any content online without first creating a trial/test account so see if it checks out.

Personally if it is not overdone, i don't mind it a bit if this permits OSnews to generate more cash.

None of these books are relevant to my interests. Not even for free.

The free book offer is about three years late. Working for an IT security company, I was excited at first. But after giving away my contact information (which I don\'t really care, as it is all around the Internet anyway...), I learned that the free book is three years old and has most of its illustrations from Windows XP. The three business WPs are of course not from stone age :-)

Wow that form is a lot of work to get a book I might not even read. I couldn't get through all of it so fuck them.
Why do they do it like this? You are only making sure I hate the company before I have ever done business with them.
