No, you didn't have to do anything but navigate off the page. I just checked again myself and she is nowhere to be found .... I think they have already sacked her. Wink

Oh no! And she was so nice and happy!

I can't get it to show up anymore either. At first, I thought it was because I already had a cookie from the original offer, but I cleared them and also tried a different browser so you're right and she may really be not-so-happy any more. Wink

She's back! I went to signup.dreamhost.com, then over to cnn.com and she showed up. Thankfully, they're using live agents, and not the dead ones.

EDIT: She lied to me! Her name is really Grace:

I just went to the sign-up page and she popped up when i hit the back button. Then I also got multiple javascript confirmation boxes when trying to close the "salesrep layer".

*do not want*

I have referred a number of friends without trying to force my affiliate code on them, because there are so many max discount codes readily available. This just makes DH look a little less professional.

I am still "working for the man," so my opinion is only marginally valuable. Still, I suggest a minor functional redesign of the sign-up page.

Yeah .... confirmed that the "Intellitard" chatbots are back. Sad I think this is uber-lame, myself, but I have to wonder why there are here, then gone, then back again.

Maybe DreamHost is testing and evaluating effectiveness - it would *so* suck if this kinda thing actually proves to be effective, as that would likely only encourage its use.

And if it *is* effective, I suppose we can only blame the state of the net and the proclivities of website visitors - you can't really blame DreamHost too much for employing these tactics if they are effective. Sigh ....
