Cranberry Juice

Yup, that's todays flavor, bitter and sweet and leaves a yucky feeling in your mouth (like juice residue). Ew.

After the whole Flickr fiasco, I decided to contact the BBB and filed a complaint against Yahoo!, who owns Flickr. Do I really think anything will come of it? No. But did something need to be said? Hell yes. If anything, to hopefully remedy their poor customer service so this doesn't happen to someone else. I had heard of others losing their accounts without warning and I do hope they filed complaints as well. Especially if it was due to lack of customer support.

Oddly, I did get a similar warning email about a year ago against my Winklepots account. I wrote them back with the same, "What are you talking about, please clarify," and they wrote me again stating that they didn't see anything wrong either and that they would remove the flag on my account. Needless to say, I will not open any new accounts in the future with Flickr. This is such bad business practice and they should be ashamed.

Yes, it all just tastes like cranberry juice. Obviously bitter, really bitter (like there might be a hint of cyanide in there) and a little sweet because it was good while it lasted and I think it helped to inspire other venues to offer searchable screenshots as well. *sigh* I'll betcha a bit of vodka would make that juice a little more palatable. Cosmos anyone?

Oh hell yes! Add some vodka to mine, please! Now that is a glass of cranberry juice I can tolerate. :D

Stupid, stinkin' Flickr.

Ew on the juice residue, that is the perfect description of it! Good for you for telling them what's up! More people SHOULD do that!
