Dear both @Facebook@twitter.com and @LinkedIn@twitter.com: the fact you've emailed me to tell me I have a new message — but then don't use that very email to *let me read the body of the message* — is the height of stupidity.

Honestly, y'all should be straight-up embarrassed.

Hugs 'n' kisses,

@aendrew You know why, right? They need to inflate their page visit stats by forcing you to hit the site. Your clicks are the product they're farming.
