Lunacy Unleashed

Notes from the field in the War on Spam

Gmail becomes annoying

Google’s Gmail service just pissed me off.

As you’re probably aware if you have Gmail, Google just added several new features to Gmail, primarily among them the ability to carry on live chats with other Gmail users, right from within Gmail. One of the other features they added at the same time, however, is the one which is driving me nuts.

Everytime you place the mouse over a message in the listing, this box pops up.

Annoying Gmail Popup Box

And it’s driving me insane. I don’t want to add them to my contacts, mail them or invite them to chat! I want this box GONE! And there’s no option to turn it off.
