    not true. i use hotmail simply because i have an account and there`s no need to change it. i don`t even use email that often. but i know my way around a computer.

    I have one of each, and don`t call anyone to fix my computer because I don`t have anyone. Also, I have multiple because it`s handy. You know, have one for your main email, and one (or more) for your spam accounts.

    For all those who think this is an accurate representation, or get mad at it because it doesn`t represent you. (IE, you using aol, but don`t act like that):

    Welcome to the internet, its full of meme`s, parodies, lolcats, jokes, and funny stereotyping.

    Enjoy your stay.

    im a hotmail guy, and im not to fond of it, but ive had it for so long its not worth changing to a new email address, because then id have to tell everyone i know, and then id get a ton of questions like "Why?" and "When"... i use an asus, im somewhat computer savvy, not 4chan worthy quite, but almost...

    i like the significant difference from own domain to gmail user:
    own domain, god like being that drats computers and can program whilst sucking his own rooster
    gmail users, can just about handle turning on a pc

    hmm methinks the oatmeal might be biased

    I have a uni email address - which says I`m smart enough to get into a good university - and a gmail address, which I got way back when you needed an invite. I used to have a hotmail address, way back when I was a kid, named after my Neopets account (takes you back, eh?). I dropped that years ago.

    I have three business email accounts with my own domains which I manage, one anonymous gmail account (for places like this), and a personal account with my home ISP. So I guess that makes me God`s boss.

    Oh, and that last guy actually says, "forward slash...forward slash..."

    I have to disagree with this.

    I have a degree in programming, repair and build computers, and know how to skip past the phone mazes to get to 2nd and 3rd tier tech support for most companies. I use hotmail for the junk mail filter and to keep viruses off my personal computers.

    I had Gmail for a while, and I hated it. I couldn`t sort my messages into folders, and the built-in spam blocker kept rejecting EVERY message from PayPal, even the ones I requested. I`ve been with Yahoo for ten years, and I`ve always liked it.

    Hmm, ability wise, I`m in between gmail and hotmail. But if I want to look professional I`ll use one of my school emails. If I want to read mail and send mail casually, I`ll use my AIM mail. If I don`t want to receive mail I`ll send it to my AOL. Last time I checked, I had about 1200 unread messages, and about 100 spam messages in my AOL.
