} Oh ignorant supplicant, I would have thought that you'd know better
} but obviously not. This is nothing to complain about, on the contrary,
} it's perfectly normal and if anything you should be thanking your ISP!
} What happens in an outrage is that the main server temporarily screams
} at the top of its voice to release the anger which it has built up
} over the preceding week.
} This anger is due to many things, mainly ignorant users who mistype
} email addresses or urls, people who do not maintain the links on
} their web sites. But most of all this anger is caused by the "newbie".
} You know the type, sees a space at the top of their browser for the
} url and thinks "hey if I type sex (or anything else similarly smutty)
} in that box, I'll get cool pictures".
} Why no one bothers to give these people half an education about
} computers when they buy one, I'll never know.
} Before you know it they'll be onto usenet and starting a flamewar of
} global proportions.
} So back to the outrages - if the server didn't release the frustration
} built up by these ignoramii then every time you sent a mail to
} the wrong address, it would most likely be returned, not with an
} unintelligible message from the server but with a string of expletives
} and with viruses attached.
} So be thankful, ring your isp and take some cookies round for the
} good folks that work there to let them know they're doing a swell job.
} *Unless* you use aol, then just tell them they suck.
} You owe the Oracle a punchbag to release anger built up by stupid
} questions like this.
