Brothersoft gives an example of how best to annoy me ..

Alas annoying me isn't an easy thing to do, I'm a very patient and normally placid person, but as with everyone else - some things just get my goat, and Brothersoft is one of those things.

Long story short, I've been receiving e-mails from them for some time now, that contains;

Needless to say, I've sent them numerous e-mails telling them I neither requested nor want the account. Most of those times, my e-mails have gone unanswered, sometimes I've gotten a reply such as;
OK,removed.Please come back and check.



My last e-mail to them however, resulted in their sending me the following;

Oh dear, they've sent me an e-mail telling me my account has been blocked for rule infringement, fantastic - but I DID NOT ASK FOR THE DAMN ACCOUNT TO BEGIN WITH!!!.
