What not to do -Acronis take note!

  Gingermum 08:43 19 Oct 2008

I am really totally frustrated with the Acronis web site. I am a native English-speaker, I am temporarily living in Belgium - in the Dutch speaking area. So why the h**** do the Acronis web programmers think I want to go to the French site? I don't. And I can't get onto their .com site. It keeps throwing me to the French site. Not very sensible to say the least!
Turning off cookies doesn't work either.
I bought the software in the UK and it is in English.
Moral: You can be too "helpful". Check any assumptions you make about users. Stop trying to control users. Let them choose for themselves.
I am now totally p******* off with Acronis.

When you're on the French site, click on the language selector at top left, and select the European English site.

To save you the trouble of even having to do that,

Thanks for that. I obviously got up far too early this morning!
