What someone said about Shelfari

October 8, 2007

I received an invitation from someone I knew to Shelfari, and asked if they had found it useful. Here’s the reply:

Oh, don’t get me started about them. I am so cheesed off, it’s not funny. First of all, I never meant to email anyone, actually, you were the only one I intended to mail, since you were the only other person I knew well, with an account there. But the damn site’s interface misled me, and it shot off an email to every tom, dick and harry I have ever received an email from on gmail, half of whom I don’t even know!

That irritated me so much, I deleted my account right away, and now, despite my doing that, they have sent this stupid reminder. I really wish I could sue them.

I am so angry, it’s not funny…. I hope you delete your account too!! 🙂

Ah… that.

Does Shelfari have an option to delete the account? That, at least, would be ethical of them…

I joined something called Shelfari and had added a few books, including R K Narayan’s Swami and Friends , which is one of my all-time favourites. So today I tried to add The Guide to my list and lo and behold (or rather, low and don’t behold), it wasn’t listed at all!

HUH…that’s the last of Shelfari!
