Rant: Not Showing Message Content in "You've got a message" Emails

I just wanted to let off a bit of steam on a minor thing that I'm sure you all can relate to.

How annoying is it to receive emails that say things like "You've got a new message in your inbox" or "someone wrote on your wall" or "such and such has left a comment to your photo/video" but the email never actually shows what the message is?

I know it's supposed to be an incentive for you to log into your Facebook or Youtube or whatever accounts in order to actually read the message, but in the end my email inbox is just cluttered with notifier messages that serve no other purpose.

Facebook got part of the message with showing the contents of private messages inside the emails themselves, but haven't gotten around to showing what people wrote on my wall, or comments on photos (as far as I remember), etc. Why not? It's the same damn thing.

So if anybody in charge of those services hear me, we are all sick and tired of these fake-mysterious notifications of received comments! Show us the content in the emails!

I am new to your blog.
It sure is technical,
or perhaps I should say
I am not technical.
