    I never really used AIM. Just logged back in one last time today to see what actually happened to that thing. Can't believe my account actually still exists.
    Is ICQ dead yet?

    Well it also had no users, and it still has no users. So I guess it's pretty easy to maintain

    People/corporations with a lot of money do weird shit sometimes so keeping something nobody even uses online is one of the least strange.
