AOL is a messed up place

Remember when AOL dropped the ball and accidentally released three month’s worth of search logs of their users…

It amounted to about 20 million searches of its 650,000+ users. Oops.

Well, the fellas over at Something went through the log with some scripts and found some interesting users. It’s scary…

When people post on any forum, whether it’s a serious Mozart discussion forum, Something Awful, or, they usually act in a manner that’s presentable to the outside world. Of course they do, because someone else is going to read that and they wouldn’t want to look like a fruitcake in front of everybody. But behind that relatively normal exterior there are things they’re wondering about and want to know, and they type these things where they think nobody will ever see them, like into search engines for example.

Read the whole mess here.
