All I can say....is I HOPE this makes most of aol's blind users (I mean blind as in they think they are the best and the answer to everything) realise what aol is, what they do and how they opererate.

I have been trying to switch people from aol for a loooong time, but they think aol is the best with all the software it stuff deeply into your computer.
They really see the difference once they have a "true" isp (one that requires no software at all).

Actually, if there were a way to impose a tax on all E-mail accounts on a per message basis, E-mail might be worth using again. Imagine the amount of spam that would be eliminated.
Caution, joking on a webforum can sometimes lead to this: Video footage
Please, think before posting about religion/bush/war/law enforcement. Please, save a keyboard.
