I'm on a stranger's AIM buddy list???
Been on AIM all evening, and somebody with a screen name I've never seen before messages me. I have AIM set to ask my permission first, so I make him wait and google his screen name first. Only hit is what appears to be a defunct clan website. I don't even play games at all.
I don't know anybody by his (real) name, nor does he know anyone by mine. He has no idea how I turned up in his buddy list. I thought maybe I'd bought something from him, but he doesn't visit any of the forums I do. I thought maybe someone else once used my PC and chatted with him, but he doesn't know anybody where I live or where I went to school.
How the heck would I get on this total stranger's list?

Maybe a typo on his part sent him to you?
Just ignore it."The world burns while Obama Tweets."

Ya... you seem to be overreacting quite a bit. I get random IMs all the time, no big deal.
Maybe he got drunk and decided it would be cool to surf some random tech forum and clicked on your name <shrug>.

Yeah, I love when people message me and ask me who I am.
"Well you tell me, since you messaged me."
That gets 'em to beat it every time.

I'm just going to write it off as a random AIM glitch.

I've gotten randomly added to people's buddy lists several times, and no one can explain it.
I think AOL is trying to hook me up with a girl or something...

Sounds like the guy made a new account and merged contacts. I did that with MSN a few weeks ago and all kinds of people showed up asking who I was. I didn't even know half of the people added; most of them were not even visible to my main MSN account."I'm hung like a horse and will kill you for no reason."

dud your over reacting really i mean if you dont know him just ignore him or simply block him and remove him from your buddy list.
