I have HOW MUCH new mail?

It's been some time since I've last a journalled a complaint about AOL....

I don't have AOL at work, but I check my email by going to aol.com.  When you log in the new aol.com screen, it shows a little mailbox and the number of "new mail"s in it.  If the mailbox is empty, it'll show a zero.

I have six screen names.  It works fine for five of them.  For the sixth, it wouldn't show anything next to the little mailbox.  Whether there was mail in there or not, it wouldn't show ANY number (not even a zero).

Today, I logged into aol.com with that screen name.  As it turns out, there was no mail in my box.

Guess how much mail it said I have.

It said "-2."

Honest.  I had negative mail.  Did this mean I owed two people some messages?  Or was it that I'd received two pieces of spam and it was AOL's way of telling me it had deleted them unread?

Can't wait to see what it'll say tomorrow.  Maybe I'll have π mail.  Or maybe i.  That'd be fun.
