I created an e-mail account probably around 1998 or so with the then heralded Yahoo! service. The internet was a fairly new thing to me and I didn’t have much of an idea what I was doing outside of my comfortable AOL bubble that I had created for myself with the help of the many “free” CDs they sent in the mail promising “Fifty free hours of AOL use!” or whatever the hell it was. I have been riding with this e-mail account since its creation and have been deflecting the attempts of other people to convince me to jump on the Gmail bandwagon.
“Yahoo sucks,” is a frequent argument.
“Gmail actually works,” is another one.
