However, gmail does have this (http://mail.google.com/mail/help/intl/en/legal_notices.html)

Again, it's their 'universal terms' rubbish that scares everyone !

Ofcom investigates X-Factor debacle

Pot calling kettle...

Ok, so OFCOM really shouldn't be wasting money looking into something like this - if there were only call losses on Rhydian's side, and there was >= 1 % between the two, then with a total of 7million votes, Rhydian would have had to have lost around 70,000 votes....

However, what makes me laugh is all you people saying "X-Factor is rubbish", "Can't believe people waste time watching this...", "Idiots wasting their money", "Wish they'd vote in elections like they do in reality TV shows", etc...

A) So *you* think it's rubbish... the people who vote probably think the same about the stuff you watch (trains, perhaps?).

B) Wasting time - what do you think replying here is doing?

C) Wasting their money - they probably don't spend it on the latest tech gadgets - it's their money, not yours, to do with as they wish.

D) Number voting in elections - would be nice - however, to make an informed opinion on a government takes rather more research than listening to someone sing and deciding if you like the sound.

TFIF.
