    @Michelle they actually sent me an email.

    @Michelle then I go to the link, press the unlock button, and they said "we're having trouble."

    Update: I tried to unlock my account again to show @Michelle the error message, and it unlocked my account.

    I don't know if this makes me hate them more or less

    @lunorian no, ive tested multiple times, and its because i sent the link. after i get unlocked a few days ago, i immediately typed it again in chat, and it locked me. try for yourself if youd like.

    Are there any recommended free chat IM systems that do allow you to send URL's/etc. without banning you in an instant for reason X/Y/Z ?

    I miss ICQ..

    @Nanos ICQ was awesome. What's more, there was no size limit for a file you attached. You could send anything to anyone you wanted.

    You know you can still run your own ICQ server. :-)

    @Nanos I wasn't even aware it still existed. <^_^') Thx for the info. Someone on Medium wrote "If you already have an ICQ account, you can log in instantly via e-mail or UIN." I wonder if my account of 1999 is still active 8)

    I'm trying to remember if the new ICQ clients correctly do invisible mode or not.

    Eg. If when you login, if you have already set invisible, you login as invisible, and not, visible and then changed to invisible.

    As some chat clients changed to that approach, which means your 10,000+ friends who haven't seen you for years, start sending you messages, when you don't really want to talk to them right at that moment !

    I really liked the live chat feature on ICQ, as you could feel more of what the other person was saying by the way they typed, their speed, their mistakes, corrections/etc.

    I don't suppose there is a modern replacement for that nowadays ?

    You know, I can't even seem to find a video of the IRC style split screen mode ICQ has/had !

    Looks a bit weird on my phone. I'm gonna check it on my desktop later on.

    I really liked the "offline" feeling it gave, if that makes any sense. It felt like a pure private FTP-connection between 2 people. Maybe that's exactly what it was 8)

    Instead of ICQ why not IRC?
    You can run your own server also, and you can also encript it.
    I don't know how, since I never had to do it, but you can even make a webapp that uses IRC in the background.

    Hi there, can you help me because I’m having the same issues with you. I received the same email as you and I clicked the link they provided and tried to login, but is written there “cannot find the user”. What can I do for now, please help me, thank you so much

    Setting up an ICQ server is very easy, setting up an IRC one, is complicated ! (Read, beyond my current abilities.)
