  1. AOL hopelessly radical left leaning...

    After being a subscriber for over 25 years, I must say I am utterly disappointed that AOL has become so LIBERAL...it is one thing to lean left, but to provide statistics based on their opinion is not worthy of them. I only wish they would get back to reporting facts and at least, try to stay neutral politically....half the country is conservative, some how they cannot accept that FACT!!

  2. I'm aware OF blocking features IT DOES NOT WORK! WHEN DOMAINS NAMES ARE CHANGED

    I am quite aware that you have blocked me features to block an email

    Don't you think I've used that and I'm supposed to go through 4,000 emails and Inter 4000 block messages it doesn't make sense to me at all

    It makes no sense and they keep changing the email name they keep changing the Domain name I said this over and over again you cannot block something if they're constantly changing the domain name and the email name what good is it having that and I get 4,000 spam emails in my box all the time it happens over…

  3. Your Suggestions Don't Work...NONE OF THEM.

    Here's what you have suggested:

    "Hey,
    Wanted to let you all know that you now have the ability to block mail from unwanted senders. Please click the link here to learn more: https://help.aol.com/articles/keep-your-inbox-clean-by-blocking-unwanted-mail-in-aol-desktop-gold
    Sincerely,
    AOL Product Support"

    I have been an AOL subscriber for more than 40 years, probably longer than most of you current staffers have been alive. Rest assured that by now, I KNOW how to block spammers. The only trouble is, none of your suggestions works anymore.

    Are you really serious about blocking spam/phishing, or are you only interested in filling every available space on a given…

  4. Usint AOL gold dwhen needing to print an attachment it takes 4 additional steps to print. using google acess it automatically down loax

    Using AOL gold when needing to print an attachment it takes 4 additional steps to print. Using google access to AOL it automatically down loads and then allows me to print. I dont need to save the attachment.

    Switching from Gold to Google access is another additional step.

    Can you reduce the steps to print an attachment from AOL gold.
    Very cumbersome with Gold. .matepstein@aol.com

  5. Unbelievable

    AOL Desktop Gold is a mess. It has been years and almost nothing has been done to fix their problems. It is hard to believe that something that was so good for so long is now a disaster.

  12. Here is a suggestion, ANSWER ME!!!

    I seem to have been locked out of making comments. I received no warning as to this and NO comment AS TO HOW LONG IT WILL BE. I have tried MANY times to get an answer about this to no avail!

    I know you will scream about violating community standards, NO! I know the event that brought it on. I had made a comment that was censored for violating COMMUNITY STANDARDS. I SAW NOTHING THAT WOULD VIOLATE ANY COMMUNITY STANDARDS! I was angered and copied the post and reposted it after removing a sentience which was of course blocked. I…

  15. Blocked All Emails from a given domain.

    Provide an email option under "Block Senders" to allow blocking of an entire domain. Most junk/phishing emails come from sites that generate temporary email names: @somesite.** would eliminate a lot of junk.

  16. Your new price increase!

    i have been a AOL member for over 40 years and have seen many increases over that time period. Much of the service I am getting is not worth what you people are going to charge on your new increases. On top of that I am a senior and the way costs are up, I have to make some changes in the money I spend each month I will be looking for another service provider and do away with AOL! You people have priced me out!

  20. SPAM PROBLEM

    Are you trying to force us to cancel AOL?????
    Why am I getting bombed with SPAM in my mailbox?? I had over 150 spam emails in my mail box the past couple of days!! I send them to spam and delete all and there they are again. Hard to believe you treat "paying" users with no regard. If by chance this is a bug then FIX IT........It's ****
