30 MILLION IDs ripped off!

And these are the same guys who are leading the charge
to kick you off the Net if your PC is a infected and spamming
other users.

If MS would write tight code and AOL didn't hire
theives amybe THAT would cut down on all the viri and
spamming!

I was walking down the street, minding my own business, when on Thu,
24 Jun 2004 11:00:06 GMT, "Sparky" screamed
from behind the mulberry bush:

30 MILLION IDs ripped off!

And these are the same guys who are leading the charge
to kick you off the Net if your PC is a infected and spamming

What does MS's code have to do with a stolen subscriber list? If the
****ers were using an Apple machine, they'd still be susceptible to
the spam.

Brantard explains his employment as a migrant farm worker before his permanent residency as a vagrant/wandering-nutjob/welfare-recipient in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul area:

Indeed. I AOLways thought Nelly(ie, Brantard) was lavender.


Mexican

Maybe a pastel pink?

You dumb smuck!


A misspelled P/K/B. How Nelly-ish!


Nelly is Mexican.

Very flawed.
How is Microsoft to write tighter code to cut out spamming?
If a spammer has your address, how does Microsoft stop the spammer?
You already have a variety of tools available to help with spam and
you don't even have to anstall or buy anything.
Why don't you use those tools?

We don't. I get less than a half dozen spam e-mails a day.



Is AOL your ISP?

I thought it was 'virii'! No! Wait! Maybe it is 'viriii'! Damn, what is the
rule for pluralizing Latin nouns...uh, oh; hark! I am not writing Latin, but
English! So maybe I should apply English rules of pluralization? Like,
'viruses'?

English plural of virus = viruses

In Latin, viri (men) is plural of vir (man)

In Latin, I do not think there are recorded any instances of a plural
form for virus being different from the singular (in English words
such as sheep).

Same here.... SPAM is one of the few things that I felt made 9.0 worth
upgrading to.
