I wonder why people continue to try their luck against all odds. In my case it’s not as important as say, gaining world peace but show some respect will ya?
When it says (in red bold font, no less) 250 characters maximum with spaces, it means exactly that. It’s not 250 words, it’s not 250 seconds of my time that you wasted, it’s not rocket science. It simply means, give me your description in not more than 250 characters WITH spaces INCLUDED.
Still they send long irrelevant paragraphs detailing useless things like how wonderful and great they are. I doubt they would ever realise that nobody really gives a shit.
Then again if I were to hire a consultant for the field that I am in, I wouldn’t want to hire someone who can’t read e-mails and does not understand ‘250 characters maximum with spaces’.
I wouldn’t moan so much if not for the fact that I have to cut, snip and edit their 1000 characters. I’m sorry if 250 characters with spaces don’t sound like much but it’s a free listing so either pay up or play by the rules.
The most you get away with is maybe 260 chars with spaces. But at what cost? Suanie’s hate that is.
Time wasting ohm-ing illiterates…
A weird thing happened. I said before that I am normally mildly depressed and apathetic for 18 days in a month. But that hasn’t happened for a long long time…. 2 months maybe?
I can’t possibly be happy, can I?
