Propellerhead - Webmail Rants

For the past few days, I was wondering how I was getting so many General Motors pop-ups in my web browser, and then I realized that I was typing "GM" into IE, and even though it's usually smart enough to put me into Gmail, IE somehow decided I was a loyal GM customer and put me there instead.

When did Yahoo Mail become Microsoft's Whore? There's an ultra-annoying pop-up involving a runner who represents MS Net Meeting or some such service whenever I try to access my yahoo mail.

Yahoo still does pretty good at screening out crap though. I haven't propogated my GMail address enough for this to be an issue, but I've had my yahoo mail since I was a newbie, so you can imagine how much spam I'm treated to at this account.
