    Well over 80% resubscribe each year nad most expand their subscription. Why? They enjoy working with like minded people. I laughed a little when I read this post and I winced when I read some of the comments. No I have never worked with any of the miscreants mentioned. In my life, only in a bad movie are these weirdos found and I walk out if in the theatre or stop the dvd if at home. I have zero tolerance for less han 100%. 99.9% of all brands expect the moon and get it. The recent adsthatsuck.com, adrants.com "food fight" virals are way over the top to make any sense to me. Marketing people ask for referrals all thetime for creative and media buying agency contacts. Who do you suppose gets the call? The one that answers there phone at 5:40PM... orthe one with the voice mail that that is four days old? I agree with Ann H 100% if you encounter a negative person, one hat celebrates wird off topic conversation... stop them cold.."wait a minute, hold that thought, gotta go! seeya!" and over your shoulder, "nice talking with you". do this enough and even a donk will get the coded message. Do not bother me, I'm working.

    *moahahaha* I used to work with one of those bullhorns, we treasured his random collection of wordstrings that happened at least once in every meeting. I wish I still had that little notebook, hours of entertainment.
