It Was Only a Matter of Time

I am the world champion of people forgetting my name. I wish I had a dime for every time my best friend or my parents see me in the mall and say "hey, guy, how are ya?". But today I reached a new low, as my name was forgotten by the Peerflix auto-mailer name insertion query:

Maybe you have to order a certain number of videos before they bother to put your real name in their spam e-mail. If I order 100 videos, maybe they'll even send me some spam on my birthday.

Most Obnoxious Website, EVER!

This website has got to be the most obnoxious site I've ever seen. You've probably seen other ones like it. They all have the same pattern:

1) Offers amusing or useful information, but requires you to fill out a questionnaire to determine the results. It could be titled "What is your IQ?", "Is your lover cheating on you?", etc.

2) After spending a few minutes filling out the survey, there is a button to"Click for Results".

3) You will NEVER get results.

This particular website will first ask you to fill out a form of personal information while they "generate the results". There will be no results. It then takes you to a screen where you have the option to participate in some type of deal. What makes this site particularly obnoxious is that you must agree to at least ONE of the deals before you can move on. I went through three pages of that crap (with fake info, of course) before I gave up.

I will give $10 to the first person who can send me verifiable proof that it is actually possible to get to the results page for the quiz.
