Today I went to jobsonline.com for the first time, and found the
experience frustrating and tiresome.  I had to spend so much
time deselecting sales/potential spam and closing popup windows
(like one for coolsavings.com that filled it's registration form
with all the info I'd just given to jobsonline) that I nearly
gave up.

When I logged in a second time and AGAIN had to deselect
receiving potential spam, I decided that I did not need a new
job so bad that I was willing to put up with that.
