    Attached. It just blew my mind, especially at the price they're offering.

    LMAO... what they don't tell you is that the 9.95 / mo only buys 150 MB of disk space and 10 Gb of transfer (or something like that)... you pay for anything over that.

    Didn't you notice the "starting at" preceding the price? That means that the base price is $9.95 - it's all about semantics. In the end, you'll get a bill for $35.57 and be left stupified.

    This is the kind of advertising that gives marketers a bad name :-P

    The wording is actually kind of ambiguous given the context... it could be considered misleading advertising and get the company in trouble.

    I think this image should be entered in the July contest. Call it a "Fantasy Piece". :-p

    What's sad is that that can work on some people.
