My webhosting company sends out a monthly newsletter. Unless most bits of marketing drivel that hit my inbox, I actually enjoy reading this one, because it’s typically hilarious. An example from this month:
4. New! Webmail Upgraded to 1.4.15!
Of course, putting a ribbon on a turd doesn’t stop it being a turd.
We’ve tried upgrading squirrelmail (our open source webmail software) to
version 1.4.15 recently to see how big a ribbon they put on it:
http://webmail.dreamhost.com/ or http://webmail.yourdomain.com/
and as far as I can see, the ribbon, it does nothing.
What a waste of time that was. No obvious changes or benefits at all.
That’s downright awesome.
