Warning: this snarky rant has some profanity.
Well, I should have known.
I’d been using Gmail for years. It started sliding down hill a few years ago. To save it, I went to Inbox.
Four years later, and a year of PERSONAL frustration for me, frustration that included random shifting of mail into different places. WaPo’s news letter will be in one place on one day, somewhere else the next.
Delete an email? Not under this POS. Delete may work. It might not. The emails show up again and again, driving me crazy as I remembered already reading that mail and deleting it, sometimes THREE TIMES IN ONE DAY.
Earlier this year, Google announced they’re dropping Inbox. Does that mean they fucking improved Gmail?
Not fucking likely.
Being Google, it still works like crap. However, they’ve managed to add several infuriating features. One particularly pisses me off. Each time I delete an email or change a tab — hell, anytime I do anything in Gmail, a small offer comes up:
Nothing stops this zombie question. Can’t be turned off. It just asks me again, and again. Hide? Fat fucking chance. It comes right back up after I do something. Click the X? No, that shit doesn’t help, either. Yes, it offers a brief respite, but nothing more. It’s always there, obsequiously asking me if I want to use their fucking feature.
As Rake would say, “Oh, fuckity fuck, fuck.”
