Bye-bye AOL

Monday, 9 April 2012

Today I took that final step:

touch /srv/_global_/blacklisted/domains/aol.com

I remember, even a couple of years ago, I had friends who would mail me from their @aol.com email addresses. These days people have moved on.

The two single biggest mail-providers I see in terms of spam are:

  • @yahoo.com - 832 in the past nine days.
  • @aol.com - 242 in the past nine days.

I'd like to drop @yahoo.com but I have some (misguided) friends who continue to use it to mail me. I might start dropping non-friend mails from that domain, but that's a bigger job.

Yes, this is a dull entry. Sorry. My existing bathroom has been ripped out and turned into this as a stepping stone into its new incarnation. I'm trapped in my office. Dust almost everywhere. Noise everywhere else.
