    For the last 2 days, whenever I click on a "hot link" for an email address I get routed to America Online's opening page. What could be causing this? I'm using Outlook Express on Firefox.

    It almost seems that AOL, which is anti-gun, is becoming desperate for subscribers. There are still too many gun owners, some of whom post on here, who use AOL as their ISP.

    Go to TOOLS/OPTIONS/APPLICATIONS in the menu at the top of your browser. Make sure that Outlook Express is the default application for email (mailto). If not, change it. If it changes back to AO-HELL, then do a scan to ensure you have not been infected by some malware.
