Vague ramblings

Dear ‘People who make online services’…

Posted in Musing by Ian Cundell on 10 October, 2011

…please stop trying to be helpful. You just get in the sodding way. 

It has just taken me three times as long to teach Posterous my revised Twitter and Facebook names because it kept trying to help, instead of getting out of my way and letting me do it myself.

Just becuase you can make a pop up help box thingy, does not mean you should. 

Get it? Got it? Yeah, right.


Do feel free to chip in...but be courteous when doing so. Ta.
