If you are an aspirant of higher studies, and use the internet for searching info on colleges, courses, & places to study, beware of giving your precious e-mail address while registering.

Once you are registered, you get a hell lot of spam in your inbox, from colleges all over the world. The site claims to be of “high standards”. The site is not much help for your needs, and they will become a pain in the a** with all these spams.

Those education experts do not provide an unsubscribe button, or a link to manage our account so that we can delete it, if we want to. There a lot of better websites out there for your needs. So, do not give your regular e-mail address to such spammers.

Is your Firefox looking bulky? [right click on menubar] > ‘Customize…’. Move all necessary buttons from Navigation toolbar to main menu bar. Remove unnecessary buttons.
