Does anyone else hate webinars?

Recently, every second email I receive seems to contain an invitation to a webinar for one thing or another.  Most of these invitations I ignore but there are some that seem to be interesting enough for me to bother clicking the link and at least finding out what time of the day they will be broadcast – I’m in Australia so US timezones mean many webinars happen very early in the morning my time.
