    I’ve seen these mistakes quite often on clickz newsletters – the articles carry over onto the ads…

    I’ve seen worse. Especially when my marketing bretheren believes everyone has their email set to view graphics.
    Most marketing emails I receive are nothing more than blocked image placeholders (not the actual images) or lines of html code that I don’t want to scroll through when I view it on my blackberry.

    A huge pet peeve of mine!!
    As for ClickZ – I get about 4 emails a day from them (what can I say? I’m an email junkie!) and when I view them in my vertical preview pane, the ads squish in together and I get about 5 characters of text per line.. Not pretty!
    Nevertheless – The ClickZ emails are always timely, relevant and meaningful so I continue to read them! Would love it if they fixed up the design though!
