I absolutely hate anything or service that auto-renews on an annual basis. First, I can't remember what or when it's due (I don't keep up with that crap). Second, I probably don't want to renew it, since it didn't change my life. And third, they always renew when I'm totally broke, slamming my tiny little checking account! No notice, no option, no thank you, just debited the amount, and I don't recall ever signing or approving any auto-renew option. I mean, WTF mate!
Bring guns and lawyers!
