I would be interested if you asked this Question on your poll soon.
"How long did you spend on your ISP's page and it's links?"
1. I have changed Home Page
2. Only long enough to hit the Favourites Button.
3. I always scan the page before moving on.
4. I invariably find something interesting and frequently visit a link or two.
5. I very rarely get beyond the fascinating Content of my ISP's Homepage.
I have only myself to speak for but I have never felt that my ISP's home page to be nothing more than an irritating necessity. Quickly scanned when one is terminally bored, and then on to the reason for ones visit to the web.
