No, but I did find the web injection crap they were using to insert
notifications about it into our web browsing incredibly annoying and
obnoxious.  It also left me wondering, do people still use
ISP-specific e-mail services?  In the modern world of Gmail (and
similar services), why would anyone want to tie their e-mail (and
their e-mail address) to their ISP?
