When one door closes ...

Wow. Today has been a remarkably strange day.

I woke up to a giant pile of emails in my inbox. One was from Rob, basically saying that he never ever wanted to talk to me again or be friends. Two emails later, I found one from someone that I had a huge fight and falling out with about 15 years ago, and who I haven't talked to since, saying basically very kind things.

If you had told me even two weeks ago that today he would be hating me forever and she would be friendly toward me, I would have said you were nuts. I never believed either of those things were possible.

Life can change on a dime. It is so fucking weird.

I thought he'd already e-mailed you about that. Why another one?

And we're IMing now. It's ... I've never been that close to someone in a relationship and had it not end in friendship. This is just so bizarre.

Well, sometimes there are damn good reasons why relationships end, and sometimes it's better to just not be involved with that person anymore, on any level.

Point taken. And the third email that I didn't write about was from Daryk, my ex from Chicago, checking in and asking what was troubling me. He and I broke up for a lot of very real reasons, but absolutely and completely love each other still. I don't think that one rules out the other.

Did Daryk ever treat you the way Rob has?

This kind of fighting? No. But Daryk did some other things ... it's hard to explain without actually explaining what went on between the two of us. Let's just say that there are major things that happened in the context of the relationship that I never said no to, but that fucked with me immeasurably.

that explains your "warning level"

your AIM. It lists your "warning level" at 18%

I don't even know what that means.

OK, I tried to reply to this and it didn't work.

I don't even know what that means. What the fuck is a warning level? How do you get one and what does it mean? That I've been warned 18% of the time? I'm lost.

And now both replies show up. LJ hates me.

It's an AOL/AIM thingy to combat abuse by users. You can click "warn" somewhere on the IM window, and the "warning level" goes up. I think if you reach 100% you get banned for a short period.
It drops if you don't get warned for a period of time.

Basically, it's meaningless (except for certain people who take this internet shit way to seriously)

Weird. It must be AIM specific, because I don't see anything that says "warn" in my AOL chat window.

must be. could be a way to "control" us non-aol aim users. Still, it doesn't really mean anything except to "certain people"

Man, I wish I had that function. I get so much porn "come and look at my webcam" crap via IM ... it would be great to be able to do something when that happens other than just close the fucking chat window.
