While checking my email I opened this one from Jooners. Apparently with the economy the way it is, they are dropping their customers that are not going the paid subscribtion route.
As we all know, times are tough for the corporations but how about the fact that they are even tougher for the people who are unemployed or job-less during these tough times. I really don't think they are going to miss Jooners that much. So goodbye and goodluck. I'll stick with my free ones.
