Filing a complaint with AOL?? No!!! [May. 2nd, 2001|11:36 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Hahaha ... This has got to be the funniest email I've ever got from a stupid AOL person:

This Live Journal was put into my computer by someone and I can't get it out. I do not know the password, secret code or anything like that I just want it OFF my computer. Let me know what to do or I will file a complaint with AOl. John Warnecke (xxxxx@aol.com) Act Quickly dammit
Hahahahahahahahahaha. I'm going to cry ... this is so stupid. :-P

I replied:
Filing a complaint with AOL??? That's got to be the stupidest thing I've
ever heard. Go ahead, do it --- watch them laugh at you for being
dumb. Seriously, dude... it's not their fault, and it's definitely not my
fault. AOL doesn't own the Internet, as much as you may think.

It's your friend's fault for installing the LiveJournal client on your

Uninstalling software is TRIVIAL in Windows. Do this:

-- Click Start
-- Click Settings
-- Click Control Panels
-- Double client Add/Remove Programs
-- Find LiveJournal in the list
-- Click Remove

That's how you can remove any program on your system.

I recommend you remove AOL, too, as it's fucking dumb.

- Brad
I forgot to give you my telephone number PLEASE CALL ME IMMEDIATLY
John Warnecke xxx-xxx-xxxx (xxxxxxx@aol.com) Please I want you off my computer.
I reply:
I'm not on your computer. A program I wrote is. I didn't put it on your computer.... one of your friends did.
More, more:
I haave already used the settings/control/remove/ program, but the program is still in the computer. Hey asshole get it right--I din't know how it got on there but you are listed as the one to contact--call me John Warnecke xxx-xxx-xxxx

You should send back something helpful like, "Okay, removing LJ is easy, but it's integrated with AOL, so you'll need to open up the windows explorer. Now just drag the 'AOL' folder over to the recycle bin, and then click "empty recycle bin". This should clear up the problem. If that doesn't get rid of LJ, then you may have a hardware install. To remove a hardware install of LJ, you're going to need a large magnet...preferably an electromagnet..." God damn people do stupid shit. :)

was anyone on AOL during the days of AOHELL - back during the Warez days of AOL?
I remember that AOL didn't limit the amount of space one could send through email, therefore, i had a box FULL of illegal software -- probably gigs worth all on their mail servers.

This reminds me of AOL commercials. "It's so easy to get online!" And now because of it any idiot can do dumb stuff like this. Eeek.

No, I think you should work his stupidity. Tell him that you're inside his computer and you're not coming out without a fight.

The nice thing about AOL...

...is that it is the default location for stupid motherfuckers. This way they are easier to spot and ignore, rather than us having to go door-to-door, testing their IQ, and branding their forehead.
