Hey, why can't ya just put up a form on the "Contact Cinematour" page? I am far too lazy to open up a mail client when I'm seeking that all-important contact info. Also, it is more satisfying to propose More Work for someone else.

1. Form mail sucks
2. Form mail scripts can be abused by spammers, causing servers to shut down.
3. If you installed your email client properly, all you have to do is click a mail link to launch said email client.
4. If you're too lazy to click an icon to launch your email client, you are probably far too lazy to include anything of value in said email.
5. If 30% of users are unable to properly complete their forum registrations, can you imagine how many people would be unable to fill out an email form?

I for one have had no problem whatsoever on clicking on a person's name and sending e-mail. this site has been very well designed for this purpose, and if someone as computer illiterate as me can do it, so can anybody. (its pretty scary to think that 30 percent of people can't register properly for this forum online). You should thank Adam for being as patient as he can be with those 30 percent. If it were up to me, they would be forever excommunicated from cyberland. Fortunately for you 30 percenters, he is not me. [Big Grin]
