At the risk of being seriously cliché and hating AOL, I just had to say it. Fuck them, fuck them in their stupid asses. I have used Mailblocks e-mail services for a long time and even invested in buying the pro account, which after conversion to US dollars, cost me quite a bit. I did so because I loved the spam protection they had to offer.
Well about 6 months ago, AOL acquired Mailblocks and said that they would keep the service and maintain the website. As of about 2 weeks ago I have been informed this isn’t the case and I am downright pissed off.
My email address has been MitchMalone [at] mailblocks [dot] com for almost two years now. It’s easy to remember, most of my friends have it and it’s mine. Now I have to settle for the next best alternative username provided by AOL’s terrific system: MitchMalone08398@aol.com. Why don’t they just assign me the email, WeTookYourMoneyAndYourEmailHAHAHAHA_PWNED_LOL@aol.com. Pricks.
Now I am off to configure SpamAssassin and hope for the best. Wish me luck my fellow spam haters!
