Are Internet Users Still This Stupid?

Yesterday I signed up to a golf newsletter and the following email arrived in my inbox:


Should a website bother to cater for people in this way? The space would have been much better used to show me some latest offers or write a short paragraph about the company.

I’ve successfully managed to navigate to their website and sign up to a newsletter as well as being able to read their email so surely I can manage to click on a link?

In 2007 websites shouldn’t be trying to teach people how to use the internet.
