A note to the web designers of the world

Dear web designers:

People have other things to do than look at your page all day. Just because you think your form can be filled-in in five minutes flat doesn't mean I'm going to. I may take a phone call in the middle of it. Or take a minute to create a new email address to give you. Or bury your page among the other hundred or so tabs I may have open at any given moment. It may take me a half-hour to finally hit the submit button on your five-minute form. It may take me a month. The only thing you achieve by putting timeouts on forms it piss customers off.
