Porn bookmark collections put people off upgrading to Firefox 3

“In May, [Mozilla made] one last attempt at persuading [Firefox 2 users] to move up to Firefox 3 […] Those who declined were invited to fill out a questionnaire. […] The number one reason for not upgrading was the new location bar, and the fact that it delved into people’s bookmark collections to suggest sites as they typed.”

Genuine WTF: Rapture Letters – a post-rapture message for family and friends

“After the rapture, there will be a lot of speculation as to why millions of people have just disappeared. Unfortunately, after the rapture, only non believers will be left to come up with answers. You probably have family and friends that you have witnessed to and they just won’t listen. After the rapture they probably will, but who will tell them? We have written a computer program to do just that.”

Also notice their video offering.

To put it in the words of Poeks, whom I follow on the Twitter:

“RaptureLetters.com operates on a dead man’s switch, but I prefer to think they keep one heathen on staff to press the big red “send” button.”
