It’s a ‘mouse rage’ epidemic

The Social Issues Reseach Centre in the UK has recently identified a new ailment.

Symptoms include sweating, altered immune system function and negative cardiac function.

The ailment is known as Mouse Rage and is defined as furious clicking and bashing of a computer mouse.

Causes of Mouse Rage include memory hungry flash based websites, inconsistent site navigation, banners ads and pop ups.

I’ve been suffering this condition for many years. My symptoms are especially bad whenever I am forced to sit through a site loading notice.

When are our web jockeys going to realise that when people are searching for information what they want is information, not superfluous entertainment?
