COMMENT SECTION: COMMENTS BEING REMOVED BY AOL
You can't say "CHIT" with an "S", but you can access all the **** you could ever want. Go figure THAT out. & they insist on removing my posts because they seem to disagree with my opinion.
Images and some comments will be flagged in our system prior to becoming public.
Here are some reasons why your comments may be flagged:
- Language (Examples may include: all caps, inappropriate words, etc.)
- Suspicious IP
- Any Image
In order to create the best possible experience for everyone, we request that you abide by the AOL Community Guidelines, our core code of conduct, in all of your activities on AOL Services.

I have been an AOL customer for 30 years. As of August 1, 2021 every comment I post has been rejected even though I followed the guidelines and rules. I went to the bottom of the comment thread page and posted a similar statement to question WHY this has happened and NOW I'm even blocked from using that. If AOL is going to simply reject those who follow the rules... while still allowing the same hostile and vulgar people to continue to post comments... shouldn't there be some option that would allow us to question WHY this is happening and to make a case in defense of ourselves since AOL claims to "welcome your comments." My email address is ****@aol.com

NO COMMENTS ALLOWED ON LEAD STORIES
Just like right now you have an NBC News story about Biden being in a bind re the border problems. This is a story of national concern -- AOL highlights it as the # 1 story, but no comments allowed.
Stop putting up major news items as this if you do not allow comments.
NBC views are very different from many of your users.
DO NOT POST TOP NEWS STORIES UNLESS COMMENTS ALLOWED!!
This is the third time I posted this and have read comments from others too. Why, without YOUR explanation, do you reject posts in the news area. I have been a paid member since the 90's and have NEVER had a comment rejected. WHO does this, so I can contact them. I have talked to tech people several times. I would like this resolved since I never go against the guidelines! I am a nurse and have posted to many who have thanked me for valid information.

Why are they always rejected??
Not to start an argument, that just isn't true.
Eric Shane commented
aol is flagging conservatives then allowing hate filled democrats
RICHARD SPANGLER commented
I have the same problem and I too am so frustrated considering I have no idea why I was flagged in the first place. I see comments FAR worse than any I have ever made and they are posted. WHY?
BARBARA ROSNER commented
Re Megan Kellly's remark about the NFL guys using their own song at the games, etc.....you did not put any sort of comment space at the end of the article...which is your way of "handling" us out here!!! And taking away any ideas we might want to make re: that article. Is this starting to take away OUR freedom?? You allow an OK on the guys singing their own song, but won't let us comment on it? I think they hurt themselves when they pull those stunts...they only make people dislike them and not want them around. The black players have WAY too much power. I personally don't even want to watch them in a game!! Take note...things are NOT fair anymore, and the fun and laughter is gone from the games,r
Apparently, nobody at AOL even reads these comments, or even cares what their customers think, or what problems they are having.
And, you can't get anyone at AOL to "unblock" you.
Once you are flagged, you can't get anyone to unblock you.

Why can't I post on the comments page? And why is it so difficult to get help with this situation? It is so frustrating. And I pay for AOL Gold.
ARTHUR WILLIAMSON commented
Someone should oversee the actions of these people. Review some of my comments and tell me why they were blocked. I did not violate your standards. I pay for this service and expect to be treated fairly, not the brunt of someone's hateful actions. I would like to have a comment back telling me how their actions are overseen!
JUDITH A. CARLSON commented
Now I find that not only can't I comment because of my so-called Privacy Settings, I'm blocked from reading articles. What good is AOL if I can't use it to capacity? Oh, rhetorical question - NO GOOD AT ALL. Please fix it! Thank you!
This is Faith again. I would like this to be resolved. I have talked on phone with tech support, here, etc. and I have done nothing wrong to have posts rejected.
I think you should be more careful rejecting people who are paying members who follow guidelines. I have been on AOL for decades and do not use foul or racist comments. Please help!
JUDITH A. CARLSON commented
My comments are being blocked and I'd really like to know why because I have not broken any AOL rules/regulations. The censors are getting out of hand and seem to block unpopular comments and/or comments they, themselves, do not agree with. What happened to freedom of speech?
judy ryan commented
Get rid of your sensor deciders, AOL is absolutely overly aggressive in not allowing AOL members to voice their opinion, Especially when comments of Sympaty and support are immediately rejected. Who makes thes stupid decisions anyway. I am a charter member of AOL and have seen it decrease in quality multiple times over the years, but there have been more reasons to dislike AOL during the past year than in the past ten
KARL BIRMELIN commented
MY ABILITY TO "COMMENT" HAS BEEN REVOKED
PERHAPS MY COMMENTS WERE A BIT HYPERBOLIC.........I APOLOGIZE
MAY I BE GRANTED ANOTHER CHANCE PLEASE
I WILL BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL
Lynn Steben commented
For a few days, all of my comments are instantly rejected - no review. I don't post pics, no bad words. I even tried just posting "yes" and ".", but both were rejected. What gives?
