HSBC annoyances

A while ago I moved my banking to HSBC. This move has been pretty ok except there are a few annoyances with their online banking. the biggest of which is that you cannot get an electronic copy of a statement at all. In fact, the only way to get a copy of a statement is to have them post it to you and they charge you $7.00 a pop for it! What a rip off.

When are banks going to get with the program and start emailing statements to you in PDF format so you can archive them yourself?
