  3. PLEASE stop posting photos of abused animals on welcome screen!

    Many AOL users keep asking AOL to stop posting photos of abused or starving animals on the Welcome Screen, yet AOL continues to do so. There is no way to opt out of seeing these horrific photos, so you sign onto AOL and the first thing you see is a photo of an abused dog or other animal. I'm not sure any AOL administrator actually sees our requests on this because all we ever get is the robotic answer, "Thank you for your feedback." If any human AOL employee sees this, PLEASE do something about posting these horrific photos of…

  4. Preferences for Welcome Screen and AOL Benefits

    Suggesting that a possible selection in settings to disable the welcome screen appearing when signing in. I have defaulted to go directly to mail, however, there remains a default to the welcome screen in backdrop. This is rather annoying as I can still see it and my attention is then directed to the welcome screen to make an action to close it .

    Another suggestion is that an alternative news source be available to AOL members to have a discounted subscription to CRTV.
    This would allow members to customize their welcome screen to their preferences and would make the AOL…

  6. Down the rabbit hole !

    When I click to see a story from the welcome page I don't like that it leads me on a 20 page ad filled search for what the headline promised. Also I think ALL stories should be dated. I don't like wasting time on a 10 year old story, not in this day and age !

  7. What country

    What country does AOL work for? Only a blind and stupid idiot cannot see that AOL hates America and hates is past and also hates the people who made her a great country. AOL has one mission and that is to destroy the moral fabric of the country and to destroy the reputation of those who built her. AOL sucks.

  8. investigate

    Does AOL only put out misleading BS stories about wanting to investigate republicans and conservatives? AOL hates America and needs to change its name and take any and all reference to America and what it stands for out its name. How about HPL instead of AOL...Huff Post lies! You are a disgusting organization.

    Is there anyone working for AOL that has graduated high school? It does not appear that way. AOL is dumber than a dead rat?

  12. Do Not Believe

    AOL has 90 stories on its Welcome page. There is not ONE that is happy or shows how great America is. All they do is * on people and tell stories about how bad the dead people were and who is having outside of marriage and how Trump is bad. YOU SUCK.

  13. Welcome page "fluff" in storys

    When you run a story in the "Welcome" box, it requires you to go page by page with "fluff" text. Why not run the entire story on one page and remove the garbage text. Get to the meat of the article as soon as possible. Going page by page is "VERY SLOW" even with high speed internet. It also starts bouncing adding advertisements just as your about to click "next" which then brings up an unwanted advertisement. If I'm going to pay for service then "PROVIDE SERVICE" and condense the story's to one page that you scroll through.

  15. joy

    Does AOL get some kind of perverted joy by trashing the reputations of the deceased actors and actresses. Why do you go out of your way and waste time and money just to on someones legacy. You are sick demented ***** and do not deserve to be called a journalist. Let us put your life under the microscope so the world can know who you are and what your secrets are. AOL sucks.

  19. Stupid

    AOL seems to have some magical instinct to be able to tell us what people who are deceased (DEAD) thought about things that they never told anyone while they were alive. AOL is worse than a palm reader and is a disgusting piece of trash, which can be noting less than expected coming from Huff Post.

  20. Dark details

    "Dark details coming to light"! Every week you have this post and you **** on someone who had a good reputation but your goal is to destroy that person. Is this all AOL can do is dump on people and waste their time and our money? Why is it your goal to trash people's reputations? You are sick and demented people at AOL
