Way back when, AOL charged so much a minute for internet connectivity when it first came out. I know people who were getting $200 a month bills for aol. Suddenly some other providers came out with internet access for $25 a month. Suddenly AOL dropped their per minute charges and charged $25 a month too. So I figure they were screwing people all that time because they could get away with it. Depending on the day of the week and my mood, I alternate between "That's capitalism" and "that's taking advantage of people", and maybe both are accurate.
So I started using SteveKsux as my aol account. Pronounced "Steve Case Sucks", and my email "Steve Case Sucks at AOL dot com". Steve Case was CEO of AOL at the time. It was funny enough I just continued using it for boards like this. Easy to remember, sufficiently anonymous. It was just subtle enough to stay under the radar, and AOL never caught on and cancelled it. My BillG8sux@MSN.com
account was not so fortunate...
Great class, by the way... we'll meet again.
