I want to buy that SPARK man a beer !

Well it certainly wont be a Johnnie Walker because since Yahoo replaced the lame lonely hearts advert on my Spark / Telecom /Xtra webmail this afternoon with the traditional marching whisky man, my email typing days have become impossible.
The ie11 fault box pops up constantly saying a Yahoo.com is not responding to a long running script. Tell me about it, because my email typing suddenly stops and I have to sit for an interminable time while the marching man freezes also and decides to shuffle on. Only then can I get a few more lines done till 30 seconds or so it freezes all again.
kudos to the fantastic and very good humoured Spark online help rep who commiserated over the situation and 'hinted'...how some use adblocker technology...but I couldn't possibly swear that was what was said either that or merry xmas from yahoo...
Well Johnnie Walker !
...You might be one of my favourite tipples that I buy excessive amounts of when travelling via duty free, but I guess thanks to the endless and neverending Yahoo incompetence I will choose another brand for 2015 as my own little protest.

No add-ons. No craps.
