It's worse than you think. They're not getting kicked off, they're just changing proxy servers with every hit. I'd duck and cover if I were you. IITYIHTKY indeed.
If I Told You, I'd Have To Kill You
Leave it to our "Homeland Security" types to use flippin' AOL for domestic spying. Or anything else. Are they still doing war games on their Commodore 64s? What a bunch of nin-com-ninnies.
Scary dudes, there, in Virginia.Maybe they think you still carry baby bottles or some other controlled substance...
Huh. I've been getting those too, even though I blog about 6 times a year. Guess they're just extra slow.
Off TopicElection of Alabama lesbian overturned by committee by PageOneQ The Democratic primary victory of Alabama lesbian Patricia Todd for a seat in the statehouse was overturned by a party committee tonight. The committee vote was 5-0. Had the committee not reversed the election, which Todd won by 59 votes, she would have become the first openly gay elected official in the state's history. No Republican has entered the race in the overwhelmingly Democratic district. Todd's race was to determine who would represent District 54 in Birmingham in the statehouse.Todd is the associated director of AIDS Alabama, a social service and AIDS education agency.The committee disqualified Todd and her opponent, Gaynell Hendricks, because they had not filed a required campaign finance report on time. The same rule has been ignored by all candidates since 1988 and the Associated Press has reported that this year's party nominees for Governor and Lieutenant Governor have not filed the reports as well.
Hmmmmm, I'm as suspicious a person as the next, but I'm pretty sure that all of AOL's servers are housed in Reston, VA. Anyone who uses AOL, no matter where they live, will leave a Reston VA footprint.Just sayin'
AOL built another facility in Prince William County in 1999. But here is something that is going on in Reston:"Reston, Va. is considered by many the birthplace of the Internet, the site where the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration (DARPA) Net found its genesis back in 1969.So, it's somewhat appropriate Microsoft would locate its new "safe house" -- for government intelligence agencies to conduct classified meetings and a "Trusted Computing Center" to review computer security policies, practices and techniques -- at the locale the government first tested its Internet projects.

No one can say Blue Gal hates America now!
If it's coming from AOL, it's probably nothing much.Just wait until you get 4 hits a day from the National Counter Terrorism Center, in Quantico Virginia!! (it's true, I'm documenting every one of them!)The host name will usually pop up with soemthing like this : gate16-quantico.nmci.usmc.mil
I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
