The first renewal reminder appeared on my desktop only 3 months into a 15 month subscription. I can accept a reminder or two a month before the subscription expires (with a "don't remind me again" tick box), anything more is advertising. Splashing promotional material on my desktop falls in the same category as the pizza flyers that get stuck to my windshield.
Given that the products promoted include anti-spam software I think the marketing department is bit disconnected.
Will pass this on 3mths into a 15mth subscription is not cool.
Other than that it is out of we mods hands sorry
