I don’t come across a ton of websites I genuinely hate, but classmates.com is one of them. So you sign up, you put your shit on there and they send off emails whenever anyone from your class does anything. Like view you or send you messages.
BUT YOU CAN’T SEE ANY OF IT WITHOUT PAYING!!!
So they lure you in by saying you got a message, but the sender is blurred out and you have to pay to see who is was. Alright I get it, the company that runs it has to make money somehow. But I can’t understand how a company like Google can make a zillion dollars giving stuff away for free by just selling advertising, yet other sites like classmates.com can’t seem to do the same. I have nothing against the concept of premium memberships, but some websites draw the line so low that you can’t do anything without being premium. It’s enough to piss you off more then make you pay.
I’m just going to delete myself from the site. The suspense of wondering who sent me a message isn’t worth paying the price to find out and supporting such a ridiculous business model.
