    This is what you get when the company is run by someone who says “The lack of a delete button on the Internet is a significant issue. There is a time when erasure is a right thing.”

      Erasure is ‘Always’ the right thing 😉

      “Open your eyes I see Your eyes are open Wear no disguise for me Come into the open

      When it’s cold outside Am I here in vain? Hold on to the night There will be no shame

      Always I wanna be with you And make believe with you And live in harmony harmony oh love”

  • So, 1 out of every 3 then. I guess I won’t start using any new ones that may pop up.

    • It’s more than 1 in 3 of the new services, I’m sure. They’re more likely to get axed than the older ones.
