AOL System Msg: The group, aim bots, has been deleted from your buddy list.

Hmm. Just in case you didn’t notice the first time, the message says
AOL System Msg: The group COMMA aim bots COMMA has been deleted from your buddy list.

I rest my case.

Edit:
Hmm, maybe I don’t. Emily doesn’t see anything wrong with this. I guess it might technically be correct… but it feels really awkward to me. I think it’d be much better if it said
AOL System Msg: The group ‘aim bots’ has been deleted from your buddy list.

  1. It’s technically correct because the commas are setting aside a phrase that, when taken out, would leave the sentence still making grammatical sense. “The group has been deleted from your buddy list.”

    Oh Mark, when will you quit all your SAS nonsense and write messages for AIM?

    I think it would have to be “The aim bots group has been deleted from your list.”

    First of all my server is Compuserve. I restarted my pc. and lost every thing. I lost compuserve. I had to reconnect.When I tryed to get cs. Im. it said to reconnect to aim. I find out that AIM is aol Instant Messanger. When I try to get AOL Im it says to recconect to Aim. I think the best bet is to forget any Instant Messanger and delete AOL and AIM. They won’t give me any satisfaction.
    No big deal them, no big deal to me. J. W.
