Pretty soon there will be a global "denial of service," caused by the ever increasing hi5 attacks. I hope that somewhere in hi5 management (and/or board, VCs) there is someone paying attention to the blogs, because public frustration is building. And at some point (if we have not reached it yet) a class action could be filed against hi5, on behalf of the Net public, for harassment and waste of good screen space. Just think of all the milliseconds we waste deleting all those hi5 "friend" requests.
Here is another email from a real friend of mine, in response to my query as to whether he really sent me a hi5 invitation:
clicked that I did NOT want them to send to my entire elist. They did it anyway.
Don't sign up for it.
Shabbat shalom, ______
Lets hope that the hi5 attacks end soon, and we can return to our regular spam....
