About Me

Always a Democrat. I can't understand conservatives. I try to understand them, but I can't. They don't make sense. Our country has gone so far right since 1981. I was just an average American who took many Democratic values for granted when Reagan was elected. It was like the rug was pulled out from under our society. Reagan ruined our country.

AOL removed their spam controls and 20 years worth of Spam flooded my inbox!!!

Well not exactly 20 years, but when I checked my email on Monday, it was full of Spam. When I went to my Spam controls they were gone.

The only reason I stayed with AOL for this long was because, "Only allow people from my address book" as an option. Everything else went into my Spam folder. This worked out great. I was on lists for oodles of politicians, but it didn't bother me because it went into my Spam folder. If I wanted to read a Liz Warren newsletter I could find it in my spam folder. If I didn't want to read it, it didn't clutter my inbox.

So now I will have to migrate to a new email. This is probably going to take several months. I will keep my AOL email as I transition etc. I downloaded a program called Mailwasher Pro to deal with my AOL spam and it is helping.

But just the thought of moving everything after 20 years is a bit overwhelming. From friends, to newsletters, to logins etc.

Fortunately, I've been sick this week, so I have the time to focus on this.

Everyone teased me about having an AOL address for years. I always countered with, "They've got the best Spam controls". Now I'm proof that AOL $ucks. With this business model, I think AOL is gonna go out of business pretty soon.
