  1. Flashing Ads

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

  2. 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 ****.

  3. D***** ads

    As I sit here trying to enjoy the tribute to John McCain, the damned ads kept flopping around on the side. I don't know who the idiot was that decided there should be ads there rather than captions. Yah, I know, The captions are pasted across the photo if I click the button. Stupid idea.

  4. 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.

  7. Why can't we read a story without having to click "Next" after every sentence?

    99% of us would like to read a story without having to click "Next" after every sentence. We don't pay any attention to the gazillion ads you throw at us....which, by the way, cover 2/3 of the screen. I wouldn't click on an ad if you paid me.

  8. NOT ONE POSITIVE COMMENT IN MANY MONTHS. HEY AOL? LISTENING?

    Absolutely right,new GOLD *** major wind. The old AOL program was much more stab;e and user friendly; This GOLD version is not only an embarrassment, but probably ripe candidate for a class-action lawsuit. AOL should stop charging customers for an inferior product that is rife with problems not found in previous versions. AOL? ARE YOU LISTENING? EL **** !

  10. AOL gold welcome screen new version stinks. Half screens/icons on left NO Good.

    The AOL Gold new welcome screen stinks. Half screens from the previous article or ad showing. Icons for maail and others on the left side. I liked it the old way without all the clutter and a picture (which was larger) of the article by itself. Stop changing things all the time.

  11. aol is brain dead

    Has anyone working at AOL graduated high school? AOL is such a mish-mash of driblle and tripe and that it appears to be a training class for 8th grade wanna-be's......

    AOL ****. If the word "maybe" and "reportedly" were taken out of the English vocabulary, AOL would be out of business.

  12. Rerun articles

    Quit running articles over and over and over for months at a time. Ridiculous. Classic example is Kanye's rant. Has been popping up for months. WHY? Nobody cares.

  13. Give back old sign in screen where you can see primary and secondary names and if either has messages.

    On the old sign-in screen, you could see at a glance your primary and secondary screen names and if either had any messages. Now you only see one user name and you do not see if it has messages. And when you log into it to see if you have messages, it is a huge waste of time to have to get out of primary name and log into secondary name just to see if you have any messages there. Why would you go backwards and create a sign in screen that's not user friendly and one that purposely wastes…

  14. Correct weather report

    I have tried over and over to get this correction. Now you say the idea is closed. I NEED THE CORRECT WEATHER REPORT!!! In the previous AOL version, I got the right report for Reseda, California, where I live. Now, all you will give me is the Los Angeles report. RESEDA WEATHER IS NEVER THE SAME AS LOS ANGELES! Since the previous AOL gave the correct one, why are you unable to bring that back? Now I have to go to MSN to get it. Maybe I should do everything there instead of on AOL. AOL stinks, and it has…

  15. Stupid ads

    I still think it is stupid to have picture captions that have to be activated so a damned ad can play where the caption should (used to) be, along the side of the photo. As it is now, if the caption button is activated, part of the photo is lost. STUPID!

  17. Cannot stand your one sided news reporting. Get rid of Huffington.

    Why am I paying for left wing Huffington News. Replace with a more neutral biased reporting agency.

  18. Please STOP all the AOL pop ups on sign in. I've set preferences NOT to have pop ups, and yet each time I sign in, there's AOL Games popup.

    Respect your customer's wishes. In preferences I've stopped popups from AOL or otherwise. Yet, still I get the AOL Games pop up (and others) EVERY TIME i sign in -- sometimes several times a day. STOP. I really hate this new AOL GOLD. It's terrible -- slow, freezes, and non-responsive. Get your act together, please!

  19. Advertisements fill empty Spam, Sent and Old Mail box's

    Seems like every time there is an Windows update something in AOL goes wrong or unusual.
    My latest issue is that when the Spam Mail, Sent Mail or Old Mail box's are cleared an Advertisement is inserted to the empty box.

    If I leave one email in any of these the advertisement is not inserted.

    Does anyone see the absurdity of an advertisement being put there?
    This is probably just an over site that was not realized by the programmer by making an advertisement fill blank spots.

    Please make all advertisements in the email system go away. That should fix…
