I really miss warnings in AIM.
I’m not exactly sure when or why they stopped working, but clearly AOL needs to bring them back.
I still have some pretty LOL screenshots of all my friends being warned up to 100% and barely being able to chat…
Those were the good ol’ days.
I would warn vanbergs and vanlandw immediately.

    vanberge – i cannot tell you how much i miss AIM warnings….

    It sucks they removed them I can see why they did but really it was just a badge of honor being waxed to 100% and unable to speak. After that signing on with a secondary ID just to get slaughtered again.

    Warnings were one of my favorite things about college barnone

    possibly the WORST feature ever to make it in to a chat client. I am still bitter and angry. I might need therapy to get past this. Someone should do an expose on the history of AIM warnings. brb google

    When people are bad chatters, it truly was only a proper punishment to submit a warning of up to 35%. I still remember when I had discovered a way to get people at 100% and everyone got effing pissed off.

    You mean when you just signed in with multiple screen names at one time?

    According to AOLs documentation they still have warnings. 🙁 I don’t think that is true.
