Remove Hotmail Frame sign now

Please help me rally MSN to stop abusing our browser windows with the hotmail frame.

What is the hotmail frame? When you click on a link from hotmail and it opens a new window, it opens that window with a frame with the MSN logo. The frame also includes a message that you've left hotmail and instructions on how to return to hotmail. The exact message is: "You are visiting a site outside of Hotmail. To return to Hotmail, close this browser window."

Tell MSN that it is unncessary to have the MSN frame in the top of the window. Tell them that you know that you left hotmail and that you know how to return to hotmail by closing the window and/or by going back to the other browser.

The reasons that I would like you (MSN) to remove this frame is for several reasons.
1. This frame is using screen space that I would prefer to use to view the site that I am visiting.
2. Most sites set a temporary cookie on machine when I log in so that the site remembers that I am logged in when I visit a different page on that site(eg,, forbes premium). Those sites cannott set the cookie if there is frame.

To avoid these problems, I cut and paste links that are sent to me. When I click on a link and go to these sites, I have to copy it, open a new window and paste it. That is 3 steps(7 clicks) that should be one step (1 click). If the email that I've received doesn't actually have the full url in the text, there is no way to avoid the frame. I have to open the window with the frame, right click on properties of the page, copy the url and paste it into the browser.

If the reason for the frame was to simplify things, you failed. It actually makes using hotmail much more difficult.

Please don't think we don't appreciate free hotmail. Although you didn't start hotmail, you made it a stable application and have made it more user friendly over the years, helping to make email free and easy to use for all of us.

Here are some suggestions on how you could change this with minimal problems or confusion to people that may not know how to return to hotmail without the frame (although I think that those people probably wouldn't know how to turn on the computer either).
- Allow us to set a preference in our options which enables us to have the frame or not to have the frame.
- Place a "remove frame" button or link in the frame.
- Place useful content in the frame, such as related internet sites to the one we are browsing, a search bar or even targeted contextual advertising. If you are gonna abuse our window, you might as well have a reason.
