I know you folks need to sell advertising . . . but can't you just present the article in one screen . . . must we click on a link to find "the rest of the story"?  By my reckoning, I have a minimum of 38 to 40 different "screen-views" to get through a piece o' fluff article . . . rediculous and a serious time-waster which is unforgivable in my book . . .  that's why I typically use FireFox . . .

How dumb I have to go to Bing to figure out exactly who they are talking about. Why can't you just show me who it is? SO ANNOYING!!!!!!!!! Guessing games suck. Also who gives a flying F**k where these people have worked. There is nothing wrong with working at McDonalds everyone had their crappy job growing up.

There is nothing wrong with working at McDonalds or anywhere else. It never hurt anyone to work a menial job. It doesn't mean you have to make a career out of it, but it keeps the wolves away for a while. I am 67 yrs. old, have had numerous jobs, but not once have I ever been on any govt. handout. 

The problem with people today is they don't want to work. There are plenty of jobs out their. They may not be the one your looking for, for but at least it is a job.

People who is around waiting for the phone to ring with a great job on the other end, month after month are drawing to many social benefits. ie unemployment, welfare, etc.

Just my opinion.

Oh yes, & of course it all that damn Bush boys fault!

Who's the genius behind msn that makes you click on multiple links to get all the details of a story.  It's ridiculous.  Instead of keeping me on their sight, I am now getting rid of it.  Totally stupid.

I find the presentation of these articles annoying on MSN.  You shouldn't have to click 20 times to see who is on the list.  Not to mention endure all the pop-ups.

,, why block the faces so I'm forced to use it.

This is the last time I go to msn money.  I expect info on the article the first time, not having to keep on clicking to another link.

Some notables on the list are Macy Gray, Star Jones, DL Hughley, James Franco, Jay Leno, Carl Lewis, Andie McDowel, Rachel McAdams, Seal, Chris Sabo (former MLB player), Tony Stewart of Nascar, Sharon Stone and Shania Twain. MSN is so frustrating and stupid with their Bing garbage. Just give up, you're never going to be better than Google.

Bing, no one uses a search engine so they can do yet another search. There is a reason you can't compete with the other search engines, its your model. There, I just saved you a bundle. We click on a story and when it brings us Bing, we simply google it so we can find out whats going on without clicking 47 different links.

Poison junk food?  Really?  I love how people bash the fast food industry (McDonald's in particular) when they don't know what thery're talking about.  Especially when most of them have had their share of happy meals.  A burger there isn't any more "poison" than the one you make at home.  Sure...A Big Mac isn't exactly the healthy choice but if you have one every once in while it isn't going ot kill you.  Don't blame the fast food industry for your poor eating habits.  I worked there in high school and frankly my experiece was very good.  They worked around my school and sports activities and as I went through their managment course I learned SO MUCH about business that applies to my work even today.  Interesting article.

I hate Bing.  I feel like I'm being treated like a gradeschooler.  Why don't you guys wake up and write these little articles without the wheres ,whos ,whens and all the other little BS's.  I'm usually in a hurry online and I don't have the time to be checking out all the answers you're withholding.  On top of that my computer is slow so, I don't usualy click back and forth more than a couple of times.

Thanks-a-lot-not...

Please change it?

I agree. They are running people off rather than making them loyal fans.

Im sick of these articles that are just designed to drum up seaches on "Bing." MSN, YOU are the media source, it is YOUR job to provide the information, not shill for "BING" and the 50 other companies you sell-out for on a daily basis.

The bad thing about the fast food industry and American businesses in general is the fact that they have never paid or wanted to pay their employees a "fair and decent living wage" and I guess that goes back to the days when most of their employees were high school kids working for some spending cash and now days we have adults working those jobs who rely on them for survival !

I worked at Mcdonald's and Burger King in the late 1970s and unlike today, I only needed the money for dates and a car ! I wasn't working to pay rent, auto insurance, cell phone, cable tv or internet bills !

The fast food industry has purposely kept their wages at a dismal low for over the past 50 or 60 years ! I can recall McDonalds owner Ray Kroc whining about a minimum wage increase would force him to close stores and lay people because he couldn't afford to pay employees $2.10 an hour yet he went out and bought the San Diego Padres baseball team in 1974 for $12M dollars yet he claimed raising minimum wage would force him to close stores and lay people off which of never happened and today McDonald's is still thriving !

Ok, so you want Bing to be more popular than Google, let me tell you folks, this is not the way to do it! It is annoying and a PITA. I make it a point not to use Bing just because of your tactics.
