Poor Adorama…

I think I might have hurt the feelings of someone at Adorama when I mentioned them a while back. They’re a love ’em or hate ’em kind of place, and, at least where their online print ordering system is concerned, I hate ’em.

Seems one or more of their employees was interested in what I had to say, though the Gods alone know why:

65.124.164.183 is an IP belonging to Adorama, Inc, in NYC.

Alas, they either couldn’t be bothered, or couldn’t figure out how, to use the comment-validation system I’ve got here. Their loss, I’m sure.

Someone on another computer was back later:

…but didn’t bother trying to say anything. It’s a shame, because if they’re actually interested in feedback on Adorama Pix, I could definately provide some. They should be able to find me; I’m the customer with the folder of photos entitled “Bring Back the Print Wizard, You Bastards”. 🙂
