    That is hilarious!

    I realize it's a parody, but the comments show that a lot of folks thought the writer was being *true*! :lol:

    Not many of them seem to get the fact that it's a joke either.

    If you look to the right of the page, you will see "other articles by T Reginald Gibbons." These are just as hilarious, if not quite as contraversial. :lol:

    Comments from these joke sites never fail to surprise me. Can no one get a joke? Or are people just too eager to seem like they're smart? :rolleyes:

    Nice site BTW :goodjob:

    Chieftess, without AOL, there would be no Internet - for me :)

    Why AOL? Don't have to pay for modem or activation which considering that I'm not stopping here long is good and at least they have a freephone customer support for when BT muck up.

    Dude, all of that is sooo BS.

    - I can use Internet Explorer after loading up AOL. That's not "hacking," it's just common sense
    - I install lots of programs: Tracks Eraser, Rocket Time, Ad Muncher, MRU Blaster, CCleaner, Ad-Aware, Spyware Blaster, Zone Alarm...none of them are hacking tools...
    - Look lady, 256MB RAM just ain't enough for computers these days.
    - I thought AMD had built-in virus protection
    - "Geeks" by Jon Katz? What is this guy on? Geeks is about geeks gaining power and hope on the Internet - the specific story centers around two guys who used the Internet to get out of Idaho

    :rolleyes:

    OMG - I have played "Quake" and am obsessed with "Lunix"! I must turn myself in immediately.

    Good parody...
