  1. My inbox is getting more and more COMMERCIAL ADVERTISEMENTS. I pay for AOL service, I do NOT PAY TO HAVE TO DELETE unwanted email.

    My idea is for you to NOT keep sending me emails that are ADVERTISEMENTS. i'M SICK TO DEATH of money-grubbing huge multinational corporations trying so desperately to get MORE AND MORE AND MORE MONEY from me, and other people with limited incomes. It's disgusting and you people ought to be ashamed of yourselves. But of course you are not, because MONEY is all that will ever capture your attention.

  3. TO MANY ADS

    I pay for this service, cut out all the ****.

The 50 folks in my group are very soon moving if something are not done about all the ads on the paid AOL

  4. news articles

    Why does AOL insist on taking a brief news article and make a novel out of it. You have to click on "next page" many, many times to get to the point. I am not interested in a persons life history to read about the current issue. Why can't you be brief and to the point on your issues. I had one article that I had to click on over 20 times to get to the issue at hand. Get real AOL. You should post who, what, where and when, not the life history of everybody involved. Therefore, I do…

  6. too many

    there are way too many ads and 'traps' that try to fool you into clicking on them. They take up almost the entire screen. VERY annoying!

    Returning Comments on Bug reported issues.

    When contacting AOL techs by phone on problems, they tell us to use the “Bug” link to do so. This can be hopefully helpful since so many of the AOL phone contacts are unproductive and inconsistent from one tech to another. On average, most of the phone-in tech calls’ answers to tech issues are to reinstall AOL Gold, where that often is not the solution. Their tech resolving expertise is usually very shallow. They spend more time trying to sell me a protection package than trying to find an experience supervisor to answer difficult…

    We’re sorry to hear about your experience. It’s certainly our expectation and desire that you receive the highest quality service when working with customer support. We’re sad to hear that it sounds like you did not.Rest assured that we’ve captured your complaint and will make sure your experience is shared with others in an effort to prevent this in the future.

    I can escalate this to our engineers please provide me with additional details about the issue you are experiencing.

  9. Get immensely better at what you are supposed to be doing

    You have been shut off now for 20 minutes and I have no access. Three other browsers are working. This is unacceptable and I will now begin looking for a new source of internet after using AOL solely since getting the internet many, many years ago. ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. AOL Does Not Offer Solutions to Bug or Feedback Reports.

    From March 14th and going forward, I have submitted:


    1. Two Bug reports.

    2. Two Feedback reports. (One response requested more information, which I supplied.)

    3. Contacted AOL via phone twice. (They were of no help.)

    When can I expect to receive a solution to the reports mentioned in the above contacts?

    I use AOL Gold and Windows 10.

    aol is a joke! gmail for FREE blows it away! I can walk a mile till it loads, and my PC is fast, why don't you fire the IT guys and hire some from Gmail! I can read and write ten emails while AOL loads, soon I will wipe off my PC and send to the garbage where it belongs!

  15. AOL Return Responses – Notify Us

    AOL Return Responses – Notify Us

    When submitting a Bug or Feedback report, why can’t AOL send an email indicating they have responded with an answer?

    Finding your responses on Feedback can be difficult and I usually don’t take the time to check, since often there are no responses. All you need to do is to link our email address, which is included in our report, to your responses.

  16. too many pages

    I have been an aol user for a very long time and enjoy most of your articles (stories), but it seems more often these days that the story does not get to the point, instead there are page after page going into many unnecessary details. Then after many pages of unneeded time wasting details the conclusion is reached...which could have been done in a page or 2 and sometimes never even gets to the story's intended conclusion.

    I tried the below AOL solutions and they do not work. This has been an issue since launching AOL Gold. My other browsers do not have these issues. Why can’t AOL get this fixed? I use Windows 10 and have been a paying customer for 19 years.

  18. Can't get problem fixed.

    It would be nice if I could get help with a problem I have that is your problem and I have to pay to get help. I can not get to my transactions on my capital one credit card. I says that you have a problem and are working on it, however it has been the same for over 2 months. I can get it if I use internet explorer, but not under aol. I have use aol for at least 20 years, but I can't get anyone to help me.
