(Bad language warning, do not read if bad language irritates you more then being ripped off)
I have spent years researching my family history and I have managed to trace my family all the way back to the 15th century so far, the subject of genealogy is fascinating to me, that is why I used Ancestry. The cost of Ancestry varies depending on how we pay for it, 12 months membership costs £119.99 or we can pay £13 per month, despite the fact that Ancestry is an easy to use and an interesting website full of historical information and facts, I still believe it is a rip off, the reason we should have to pay to access our own family history is beyond me.
Most the information on Ancestry should be free to access public information, family trees made public and put together by Ancestry customers are only accessible when we subscribe as are much of the old documents. I don’t believe our ancestors many of them living and dying in wars, to fight for our “freedom” would ever of guessed that their descendants would be ripped off due to their interest in finding out who they are.
Despite my firm belief that Ancestry was indeed a rip off, I am a very curious person and I had to see what information they had, I took a two week trail but two weeks is not long enough searching for relatives is time consuming to say the least, so after my free trail expired I decided to pay for a month and then another. Despite feeling that the service is very expensive especially considering that Ancestry only offers mainly basic information and you may find yourself needing other services for deeper information on World War One and Two, Criminal records and many other different parts of history. It feels like every time you find something interesting somebody wants your credit card number, but still I was a Ancestry customer for two months and despite the high price I was responsibly happy with the service.
Then Ancestry got cyber attacked, I didn’t mind, fuck these greedy internet giant corporations, cyber attack away and destroy the corrupt businesses for all I care. Eventually Ancestry began to working after being down for ten days, in that 10 days I was a paying customer, so when I called the Ancestry “helpline” to ask if it would be possible to be credited with the ten days service that I had already paid for when the site was down, I expected “yes no problem” to be the answer, it was not! “No refunds it written in the terms and conditions” was Ancestry’s answer, my answers is “THIS IS WHY WE FUCKING HATE YOU AND YOU GET CYBER ATTACKED IN THE FUCKING FIRST PLACE, YOUR GREED” to which Ancestry reply “Your swearing is offensive!”
That’s what corporations do, they steal, they thieve, they scrounge and avoid tax, they rip us off and force us to pay for information that should be public domain, but when we swear we “offend them” well sorry you fucking cunts!
Nearly forgot it is indeed written in their terms and conditions, unfortunately it seems to be written in some strange language, a modern form of gibberish I believe;
