Even the complaints process is annoying to use! The previous text box doesn’t even give me enough letters to type the subject heading for this complaint!!! Aaaarrrghh!!!

I found your page through Google. Read through your article which was mildly interesting and then thought I’d like to post a comment – oh dear here we go…

Rather than having an open forum where anyone can comment like I have on my website your site insists that everyone registers.

Then rather than opening a new tab where I can type my details in, the same tab is used and a sign-up page is loaded – really, really annoying.

Then having aquired all my details, I have to leave the page altogether so I can go and check my email’s, so then I can click on a link to ‘activate’ the ability to post comments…

…Except the page I wanted to place a comment on has now GONE!!! So, I hit the ‘back’ button on my browser – nothing, hit the back button again – and I just don’t believe it, it stays on exactly the same stupid sign up page and it just WILL NOT go back any further – really, really, really annoying.

Then, and this bit you’ll love – I have absolutely no way whatsoever of getting back to the article I was reading! So I thought I know I’ll use the BBC search box another total flipping waste of time. The page I was reading had the heading ‘9/11 conspiracy theories‘ so I thought I’d type ‘911 conspiracy theories‘ and what do I get?
