Did you kmow?

This is for all of you AOL sufferers out there. Yes, you. You and I both know that the service is awful, the browser for the birds, yet we stick with it because we have an established e-mail name and, frankly, are just too lazy to deal with a big switcheroo. It is comfortable, it is home.


Did you know? Try this. Go to the sign on screen. The one where you enter in your user name, assuming you have not made it an automatic thing. If you have children or other users in the house, there are liable to be several screen names up there.

Okay, ready? Just enter your name, but not your password. Hold off from signing in. Just cruise up to where it says mail, and see if you can call up your filing cabinet. There you go. Now open it.

Ta-daaa, yep, every sent or received e-mail you've lazily decided not to delete for what ever reason is there. Chances are, the mails of your other users are there too. Isn't that neat?

You could have the most encrypted password known to man and you can still see every e-mail ever sent or received without going through it, or using it.

I'm a pretty trusting person, if something has a password, I normally associate that with being somewhat private. Nope, not so.

This was a public service announcement brought to you by Outfoxed. And no, don't recommend other services to me, thanks. I have one of those also.

Needless to say, there is no trust like that held by those who charge you a kings ransom every month for a service which can cause pain to others. And no pain like that of mistrust made plain, and swiftly, and with no impunity.

Just thought I'd let y'all know that.
