As you might have heard, Coldplay is giving away this week a song from their upcoming album, called “Violet Hill”. All you have to do, is supposedly go to their web site, give away your email address and postal code, and get in return an email with the download information.

Astonishingly, I never received their emails. When my first effort (much later after their “site crash”) yielded no results, I entered once more with my hotmail account and once with my gmail one, but I never received any emails from them. No, the emails didn’t got stuck in any spam folder, I made sure of that. And no, their form page didn’t fail. It clearly said that they received my info and that they sent the emails out. But I never received anything, and that was 8 hours ago already.

So, if they aren’t able to employ webmasters who can pull their shit together, then they deserve the piracy. I had no alternative but search on blogs to download the mp3 file directly.

And I did pay for that. With two of my email addresses and thrice the spam when they decide to send marketing email out.
