Website Programming that Hurts

I sent an email to one of the websites that "force feed" computers, so that they go to their site instead of where people want them to go. Read the following, and you'll see I gave them an ear-full:

In the end, every business on the Net goes broke, and you accomplish NOTHING. Why don't you try general advertising? I program websites for for people to use when they choose, not using re-directs and force feeding webpages.

In the end you'll gain nothing but angry people, that file class action suits. Lawyers love it when a group of people get together for a common cause. What will the "payout" be then?
