  2. It is socially irresponsible to allow HealthyGem & Ice Pop to advertise prods that may not be available soon incites panic during virus

    Shame on you for posting ads in the rotator by Healthy Gen and Ice Pop that there may not be products available soon. In this time during the virus you just incite panic and it is socially irresponsible. People are asked to be out as little as possible and these types of ads just cause people to panic and run to the stores. AOL you should do your part in helping during this time not causing more distress.

  5. Since I now pay for AOL Gold, I had rather not see your continual barrage of "benefits" awaiting me. They are distracting and unnecessary

    Since I now pay for AOL Gold, I should have the right to not continually be barraged with all of the benefits I now enjoy. I have to continually decline which is a waste of my time and frustrating. If I want to know about additional services, I'll ask for them!

  6. Ads on Welcome page from things I have searched for Christmas

    I have a major complaint, this has been going on for such a long time, but I have just about had it with ads hitting me in the face constantly, even when I was paying for your most expensive membership. On the Welcome page over to the right hand side, it constantly is showing me things I have searched, I know what I have searched, I dont need to be reminded, but this is the problem, we all have 7 email addresses on our accts, so I have one and my husband has another. This is the issue, I was…

  7. Opting out of Unwanted Ads

    Nothing is more depressing that having animal cruelty ads posted on the welcome tab. There should be a way of deleting these ads. Since I am paying for AOL Desktop Gold and other AOL additional services,. I should be permitted to opt out.

  8. See below.

    The home screen used to show stock market updates, points up or down. Now I have to go to the business icon on the left of the screen and it only show the percentages. Why the unnecessary change?

  9. A lot the news stories which appear on the home screen are often sordid, of little general importance.

    Select your news stories with their general importance in mind. Who cares about a single obstetrical accident?

  10. AOL and Publishing Truthful Articles

    On the Welcome page there was an article today about how you might have household items that are worth thousands of dollars to collectors and you don't even realize what you might have in your home. The article was written by someone named Gur Tirosh.

    In the article, this person said that Corningware pieces are worth big money and that if you have some pieces, you can get thousands of dollars possibly on eBay. I happen to have three pieces of Blue Cornflower pattern Corningware, so I got all excited from what I read. I went to eBay just to…

  12. Comments points

    I like to post comments to the News articles in Welcome. Since you started the points thing I noticed my points in less than two hours can vary from 1 to 5.6k. Why is that? It seems a few people like my comments but one "censor" has it in for me. Does this happen to others and when will it be fixed?

  13. Please fix my problem with welcome

    This is my sixth time to get these problems fixed. I have over 20k reputation points. When I post it shows as 1. I am no longer getting notified when someone likes or replies to my post. I even tried posting a comment that AOL found problematic hoping to get a reply, but nothing happened.I was told after several phone calls that you are the only one who can fix this.I pay for AOL and have for several years, but appear to be getting ignored..

  15. I just downloaded what I thought was the new AOL Desktop Gold, but I was in for a surprise. The Version No. is 11,2510, and I'm sorry to

    I just downloaded what I thought was the new AOL Desktop Gold, but I was in for a surprise. The Version No. is 11.2510, and it has the look of the AOL that I started with way back in the 1980's. Your latest update calls for a much higher version no., so I was wondering why the number I received is different.
    I will appreciate a response to my feedback.

    Thank you,

  17. Screen doesn't return to home (Welcome) page after internet search page is closed.

    What the f....?? I have to reopen the "Welcome" page after using the "Search" bar. The "Welcome" page then returns to the beginning (page - 1), not the page that I left (i.e. page 40). So now I need to scroll thru all the pages to get back to where I left off. ****** me off. I'd rather use Internet Explorer or other solution, and cancel AOL.
