I never had any kind of an account with AOL, yet I kept getting emails from AOL wanting me to switch providers. I asked them nicely to stop e-mailing me. They wouldn't and one of them got rude so I told them off in a not so nice way. I then blocked them from bothering me anymore. Most of my friends have YIM or MSN anyway so I really don't need AIM. Up until recently, I didn't have many people wanting to chat with me off the boards anyway. I figured I would get a laugh out of you.
