  1. Sign in to post?

    Why are you all of a sudden asking me to sign-in to post a comment when I'm already signed in AOL? I've figured a work-around, but why are you doing this in the first place? A form of censorship? (I've already written to Verizon Media about this.)

  2. 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.

  4. Article length

    How about stating how many pages one has to click through until the final conclusion of an article. After 4-5 I give up.

  5. I have the following problem with my account for no reason.

    I keep getting asked (actually almost ordered) to add my mobil phone.number to my account. What if I don't have one? Some people don't, you know. I am 88 and don't plan to buy a smart phone..

  6. Put the option to opt out of interest based advertising back

    AOL changed the opt out of interest based advertising. It used to be easy , now it's so complicated and doesn't actually let you have the option anymore. You used to be able to get it down to only a few, but now, with that option removed. You are subject to an average of 135 different companies tracking and targeting you.AOL doesn't care bout the customer, they are only about advertising, if we pay for AOL service, they only profit more. AOL, no longer stands for "America On Line" It's "Advertising On LIne"

  7. Please keep AOL Browser Updated

    Keep the AOL browser updated so I can use YouTube here.
    You Tube has been giving me this alert lately:

    We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For the best experience please update your browser.

  9. So when are you going to make your subscribers happy? When are we going to be able to write an e-mail with our choice of stationary?

    PLEASE PLEASE bring back all the options we had for writing e-mails... the stationery, the automation. WHEN are you going to think about what your subscribers want?
    Oh, and all the pop-up!? Good heavens!!!!!

  10. 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.

  11. Hi - I would like it if you could block emails with certain words in them.

    Please allow us to block emails with certain words in them. I get about 20 emails a day that are spa but I can't block them with keywords. The email addresses with todays tech have about 20 different character combos so you can't effectively block them by selecting just the email address.

  12. too much

    I was just trying to read the article on the young lad with a crooked smile, but there was so much other that it was hard to find the pieces of the story. Does anyone there give a about the story's readability? Does anyone read the **** that you post? Someone should.

  13. Restore original AOL features and Upgrade Values of News Content

    There are many issues that need to be addressed in AOL Gold and I have reached out many times to customer service. It takes 15 minutes for the program to let me sign in... My major complaint is the content in which AOL is reporting in the news feed. It is one step away from The Nat'l Enquirer. Celebrities who crave publicity and crooks who prey on children seem to spotlight the headlines. I won't bother mentioning politics since we all are aware of the bias...AOL used to give choices as to what news we need on a daily basis.…

  14. Print Preview

    Get rid of print preview or at least make a way to turn it off. It just adds extra steps to a process that is already too slow.

  15. When saved Password is not accepted, why doesn't it save the TYPED in one?

    Several times, upon going to a Facebook URL, I get INCORRECT PASSWORD. I've TYPED in the new one, but AOL GOLD does not ask if I want to replace the old.
    When I went to settings>Browser>password .. There was no Facebook password saved?
    No matter how it was lost, why wasn't a "Want to Save PW asked?"

  17. Get rid of the point system! It means nothing except a popularity contest and that is NOT what AOL is supposed to be!

    The point system is a popularity contest and that's disgusting! If people don't like a post then, fine, thumbs down, but now giving points for the number of posts, the number of posts that are liked or read, is ridiculous, unfair, and totally disgusting. GET RID OF IT!

  18. signature

    AOL Desk top Gold should add more options for different Font signatures. AOL Desk top Gold only list a hand full of fonts to select. The Legacy AOL had a hundred fonts to choose from for your signature.

  19. Two factor verificaiton

    Two factor verification is becoming a real pain!!! I have to do it several times per week every time Windows or AOL updates. It is wasting my time!!! Nice to prevent hacking, but not at the expense of using the software.
