AOL Product Support"
I have been an AOL subscriber for more than 40 years, probably longer than most of you current staffers have been alive. Rest assured that by now, I KNOW how to block spammers. The only trouble is, none of your suggestions works anymore.
Are you really serious about blocking spam/phishing, or are you only interested in filling every available space on a given page, no matter how small, with some kind of inane advertising? In that regard, I have taken to immediately closing the "Welcome" page on start-up because it's no longer readable due to the flood of ridiculous ads.
My suggestion to you, AOL, is to get serious about blocking spam/phishing or before long, you won't have any customers left....like me, for instance.
