Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Seems Great, but...

I think what they are doing with photo slideshow is OK. But what turn me off is them using AUTO-RENEWAL to trap their customers into renewing their subscription automatically and (this is the catch) with no confirmation/reminder email before the subscription is about to renew. I just find this to be really un-elegant way of doing business. Its a shame really.
