Hey, I own ZoneAlarm Pro

I just had a message arrive in my Inbox from ZoneLabs, titled: 'ZoneAlarm Pro Product Information'.

I was slightly miffed, because usually SpamBayes would deal with this kind of junk for me. Anyway, knowing that I was going to be tracked (and I was, check out this one: and this one: (fucking ballbags)) I opened this message.

Turns out, I own ZoneAlarm Pro. I guess one night I must have been feeling particularly fragile and thought that I should get it. I don't run it, I can barely even remember a time when I had it installed. But, I remember that I owned it now, I think for a whole one day, before I decided to hide behind my NAT router.

Well, whatever. I might install it again, and then set it up to block Outlook from using port 80. Would anyone else see the humor in that? You know, the part where ZoneLabs doesn't get reports on spy mail, because I've set up my mail client to block them. You know, if you think about it, it's really quite funny that ZoneLabs expects their HTTP track-backs to be useful, I mean all of their customers would be protected from this right?

Dear Society,

I hate you. Fuck off.

..oh no, wait. Come back. I didn't mean it. I'm sorry. You can touch me there if you want. I just want to be loved! :~(
