I went to the "contact us" page on chron.com and the page was invalid.... Finally I found sports@chron.com on their site, and emailed them. Instantly it was returned as un-deliverable. This is actually sad and pathetic that they are this incompetent.

I just use chron.com to line the bottom of my Angry Birds' cage.

What? You think they WANT to hear you complain? That's not incompetence, that's by design. Most places just allow you to send them stuff and it all goes into the bit-bucket and no one ever reads it. The Chron goes out of its way to tell you they're not accepting your message.

As long as folks continue to click to those pages those clicks will be recorded, the advertisers pay by the click, and the site stays up. Quit going to the damn sites if you hate them so much. That way you know you aren't supporting them.

I would say the same thing to you and your thread about issues at 7:30am. You are still here, recording page clicks, but you tried to contact the owner and get the issue corrected.

Seems a little hypocritical to say the least.

Why is it hypocritical? Seems like two different issues to me.

Yeah, that was an apples to apples comparison.


I don't think there is a one fits all solution to a problem. But apparently you do.

Well, believe what you want, I don't give a ****. My point still stands, if the site irratates you that much, don't go there. I rarely if ever go to the chronicle site because it auto starts noisy talking videos. The same with the ESPN site. I go to other sites instead.

Calm down old man. Go have a warm glass of milk and take a nap. You seem a little cranky. Even for your age.

The Chronicle staff are aware some people feel this way.

They are asking for feedback on Facebook.

http://www.facebook.com/questions/10150853232647814/?notif_t=question_answer


I will ask about the contact us links.

Oh, and my blog does not have slideshows on it, FWIW.

Yep.

I haven't visited the Chron site in months for the stuff I actually enjoy -- TC and LZ's blogs -- and it's been years since I've visited for their columns and reports.

Thanks for the 'no slide show' benny TC, but what about all the footer junk? That's what gives me a rash.
