It made me laugh because when my dad's friend set up our internet connection for us, he installed ICQ on our computer and insisted that it was the best thing on the internet and "now we can talk. I added myself to your list." Because that wasn't the least bit creepy or anything.
The guy used comic sans ms for everything. He was in his fifties.
Don't get me wrong, it can be a cute font sometimes. Bold and in dark purple? No. Never.
Does anybody else have experiences like this?
