  1. Liberal hack

    I see AOL continues to feed its brain dead visitors to liberal and hate trump articles. Why not simply be truthful and declare yourself a Left Wing appendage of the Liberal Socialist Democratic Party? You are not fooling anyone. Your "wonderful" painting of Bernie and Kamala makes me sick. I am surprised your lips are not worn out from all the butt kissing you did for Obama....but here we go again. YOU ****.

  2. Flashing Ads

    Impossible to read a story without ads constantly flashing! Its distracting and very annoying.

  3. I will discontinue the use of AOL if I have to constantly chase the "next bar" around the screen.

    Stop using my bandwidth to post these exceedingly extreme advertisements. I will stop using AOL and use a more friendly service. I pay for this service and should not be subjected to the advertisements. You go so far as to make me chase the next bar around the screen.

  6. Beta 2881 - Something to look at,

    Second day using 2881. Yesterday and again today, upon starting - AOL could NOT open any emails. Neither locally saved, or those from AOL.

    I've NEVER had this happen before, and can only think something in this beta release is the cause..
    I could NOT kill the AOL task from the task manger, another error msg I'd never seen before..
    Upon restarting AOL, both yesterday and again today, it started and quickly brought in all emails.
    I tried to send it as a BUG report yesterday, but upon restarting, noted that nothing had been sent.

  9. Why does the "LOG INTO AOL" keep popping up?

    Not only annoying, but it can easily be ignored, which tells me that this is NOT for security reasons. More likely buggy code..

  10. PLEASE PUT YOUR PAYING CUSTOMERS FIRST FOR ONCE (AFTER YOUR 35 YRS ONLINE)

    Hello. I've been with AOL SINCE 2003. Yes, over -17 years- now. Why do I put up with all the service issues, advertisements, SPAM, lost benefits, and wasted time and money?? Because AOL holds all my folders ******* that I've created since 2003 that contain many emails I want and need to save.
    I don't need to write about all the individual issues and frustrations because many of your other customers below have already done that well. I see many of the posts have not even been responded to with a simple or short comment! Acknowledgement and communication can go…

  12. ability to change the time of receipt of email.

    the time stamp for receipt of emails is 3 hrs behind me (I'm on east coast, setting is west coast) and I have learned from tech support there is NO WAY to correct it.

  13. AOL? Truly amazing they can get away with fraud for so long.

    Where are the courts? Where is Ralph Nader when we need him? Maybe if all paying AOL Gold customers contacted their local ABC News "7 on Your Side" consumer advocate reps, maybe AOL would at least be globally shamed into not being such obvious, fraudulent crooks and deliver an honest product. Really tragic and malfeasant.
    I predict AOL will eventually have their ***** nailed to the wall.

    I was informed that I need to use this feedback app for a senior tech to respond to my many issues that could not be resolved by the techs on duty.

  16. Posting on AOL articles.

    I have consistently being told I only have one point when commenting on an AOL article when I have 8.7. This needs to be fixed asap.

  17. Mailbox won't display *new* mail

    Why do I even have a "new" mail folder on AOL Desktop Gold, if I can't view only new mail when I open my inbox? If this is a new FEATURE, I don't like it! I'm paying for this service, and expect it to work at least as well as the mobile app!!
    note: before you suggest I refresh, open/close/exit and reload AOL, been there, done that!

  19. AOL FINALLY had an article that the headline described perfectly!

    This is the headline that actually told us what the article was about and, even better, the article didn't give a bunch of unnecessary back-story for us to have to wade through:

    Disappearing sea exposes wild facility the Soviets tried to hide
    When low sea levels exposed an old chemical research plant, explorers weren't ready for the artifacts it held.

  20. Deleting spam

    You seem to have made a change so that deleted stuff from the spam folder goes into the "recently deleted" folder (even though one is warned that "this cannot be undone". I liked it the old way.

    In any case, when you make a change like this,(1) tell the users, and (2) fix the associated messages.
