Ohhh, don't the powers that be at AOL know better than to mess with me on a Monday morning?
I'm just trying to get my daily dose of "Un-Common Sense"....and there is nothing but the big BLUE screen to greet me. ?? What's up with that? The answer to this mystery was revealed to me by email:
EDITORS(s), I can no longer reach my primary journal at http://journals.aol.com/armandt/sense. I returned from vacation to find out that there was an apparent attempt to up-load improper files to my ftp space. I loaded cute beach and bird pictures, not TOS violation trash. My screen name was locked. When this was corrected, I could no longer reach my primary journal; however, I can reach my other journals. Attempting to deal with the Community Action Team is extremely .. EXTREMELY .. difficult. Several .. SEVERAL .. times, I have to repeat .. REPEAT .. what I had already stated in very clear and uncertain terms. I simply want my main journal put back where it was and with all of my past journals as they were - and I don't want to be transferred to 17 more people who have to struggle .. STRUGGLE .. through their communication skills to accomplish a simple task. As I stated in my journal while I was featured at the top of your list, I would be more than willing .. MORE THAN WILLING .. to pay extra for every single call where I can speak to someone who understands English. I am having to spell, re-spell, and re-spell, and re-spell my journal name - screen name and URL to people who continually "re-assure" me that they are going to help me... and that I should worry about anything. This is ridiculous. RIDICULOUS. What do I need to do to get my journal back? Please, oh please, oh PLEASE give me a phone number where I can speak with anyone .. ANYONE .. at AOL who speaks English and is capable of solving problems. Regards, Armand
There you have it. Interestingly enough, the only objectionable thing you might run into in Armand's journal is an opinion that might differ from your own.
I'm off to practice my language skills. When the journal lock is off, and Armand is back, I'm gonna need them to complain about those cute beach pictures (because even a seagull shouldn't be seen wearing a Speedo).
