Go away. You were annoying three years ago. Nothing has changed.

I have signed onto AIM for the first time in years this week. I figured there were people I used to talk to all the time that I simply lost touch with because I switched over to GoogleChat without letting all the appropriate people know my gmail address. So I'm catching up with people that I haven't kept up with in a long time and enjoying it. It is nice to see how people are doing after long absences. However, these are all people whose friendships I valued. People who brought something to the table. Unfortunately, there are also those who bring nothing.

Someone IM'ed me last night. He annoys the shit out of me. Formally of my "school" subheading, he was moved to the "wack" subheading after all obligatory class associations passed. I cannot remember his real name for the life of me. I think there is a "T" involved somehow, but I am unsure. It is a mystery. Even after he transitioned from "school" to "wack," he would barrage me with unwanted IMs. About the weather. About classes that we did not have in common. About shit I do not care about. If you look at my logs, this is what you see:
dumbass(10:24:35 PM): [something dumb or annoying!]
dumbass(10:24:50 PM): [more inane shit!]
dumbass signed off at (10:25:45 PM)
Three years later:
dumbass(12:13:46 PM): [something dumb or annoying!]
dumbass(14:24:08 PM): [more inane shit!]
dumbass signed off at (15:03:24 PM)
So you see I do not encourage this. I think there needs to be a statute of limitations on when you can IM someone after the last point of contact. If the parties involved were once good friends, there need not be such a statute. But in cases such as this, I think after more than six months, no contact is warrented unless there is a specific, pressing need. Like being the only two people in the hemisphere with the same blood type and your kidney is desperately needed. Even then, going into shady mode is acceptable.

Someone is getting deleted from my buddy list.

That's why I'm always hiding, and being shady. Even on the gchat now, too.

motherfuckers.
