Free Willy!

    Hmm...  Apparently, AOL's mail-server is utterly borked, and it seems Wil Wheaton is being confused for a spammer.  And, after reading some of the comments, it seems AOL is confusing a whole mess of people with spammers.

    So, if you have an AOL email account (like me), and you've been expecting a love-letter (like I always am), a chain-letter, or some other bit of correspondence, there may be a chance you're not being ignored.  It's possible the ISP of the sender is blocked as a result of AOL's effective, but somewhat touchy email filter.

    So, if any AOL tech-heads stumble across this, could you maybe mend this issue?  It seems like it could turn into a huge problem to me.

    See?  I can give a heads-up without descending into a flaming rage.



  1. Penniless, but trying to make money with this razor-sharp wit of mine. Thanks for asking.

  2. Want some of my not working for me!

    My New One:

  3. Agh, so is this the updated version of, "If the phone doesn't ring, it's me?"

  4. ahhh the quaint little Amish-run AOL. I miss it so. It's God's way of making you all go to myspace or facebook. C'mon! Do it if you're cool! I always do things to make me leave comments on your journal.

    anyhoo...AOL blows. I was saying that a year ago. Just take a baseball bat to it and yell "LOOK MA! 30000 FREAKING MINUTES" and beat it til it cries...that always helps.

    or you can scare the shit out of helpless overworked underpaid healthcare workers.

    Gotta go get that modeling contract now!

  5. Obviously your hbp meds are working great!  No vein popping or screaming or anything!  LOL

    ps... did you tell Joe?  He always knows who to tell to make it stop.  He is the AOL god in my book!  

    be well,

  6. if they don't fix it, send the Chinaman round. ;O) B.

  7. Yeah, earlier this week they quarantined an e-mail address that was in my address book, and then this morning the leave a message in my box with the following text in the body: "ask men winter multiplicity agricola Clean up. shorten yak Surprise." The AOL tech and the weather forecaster: the only two jobs where you can consistently be wrong and still get paid.

  8. I just want you all to know, AOL, aint too bad in the UK.......... NOT!
    Gaz ;-)

  9. Waitress: Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;
    Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...
    Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...
    Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!
    Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.

  10. No wonder why I haven't gotten that email from you begging for me not to get married because you want me to stay at home and bake you endless amounts of cookies and serve you beer on a silver - I mean - gold platter.



  11. so THAT'S why my love letter from you hasn't arrived yet?

    heh...i don't use aol mail anymore.

    or aol anything.

    except this, i guess.

    i'm thinking about doing a beer tour of your lovely state.
