I never had cause to use AOL. Usually we can connect to the internet through our hotel without an ISP but today it was down. Being the system admin for the hotel web site the GM told me they keep AOL as a back up.
Anyway I log in do my business and it looked kind of interesting. So when I am finished, I start posting no show charges. Well each batch takes about 4 minutes to process through authorization. So being bored I flipped the window back to AOL and logged into ONE chat room. (Being a poor webtv-er I don’t have JAVA and wanted to see what the big deal was) I couldn’t have been in the chat room (it was the CHGO CHAT) for more than a minute (literally) any way I go to look at the straight dope and suddenly a little voice says “You have mail.” Within the hour I had 11 spams in the box over 1/2 were porn. There was no mail in the box before I logged in as I had to set myself up as a user.
What is up with AOL. How could I get spammed so quick from one AOL chat?
