Do you remember old days of internet? When *everybody* got tools (propably MS Frontpage in most cases) for making their own personal pages? When animated gifs and scrolling, running and/or blinking text were everywhere? Fortunately, those days passed.

For supporting eham.net site, I decided to subscribe. Now, when 29 days remaining in my subscription, I am looking at green top bar of Reviews pages and there is blinking text which informs me about near end of my subscription.

Am I alone who is thinking the blinkink text is very aggresive or is it here someone with similar feeling?

I agree that the blinking text is rather aggressive - especially today.

We were asked years ago to make it more obvious when time was running out in a subscription.  People ignored or blocked any reminder emails (or had out-of-date addresses in our database) so the blinking text was the best option at the time.

Perhaps we can tweak that.
