  1. Would

    Many times I would love to be able to post a comment on a Boredom Therapy article but there is no facility for that. I think that we should be able to post comments on all of the articles.

  2. chat room issues

    why did you put a "notify aol" button in chat rooms if no one is going to respond to them or do anything? So many evil nasty people saying hurtful things to others and when we try and send to you guys, it eithrr just never gets handled or it just loads and loads and loads and never sends. What's the point and when will the issue finally get taken care of in some form or another?

  3. False Advertising:

    I am writing to complain that AOL is engaging in the deceptive practice of sending out emails advertising what they describe as free malware, when in fact it is only a free 30 day trial. Those 30 days go by very fast, then - before you know it - you've got an unwanted charge because you didn't notice to cancel the trial. I am also sending a complaint to the FCC.

  4. I'm tired of AOL consistently deleting something that I post as it does not break any AOL rules.

    AOL consistently deletes the following paragraph when I post it even though it does not break any AOL rules about posting and is an appropriate reply to those people who insult liberals:

    Liberals are so terrible that they inflicted the following on this country: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Civil Rights Act, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, the Declaration of Independence, maternity leave, child care leave, prison reform, antislavery laws, women’s reproductive rights, food stamps, poll tax elimination, religious freedom (freedom from oppressive religions and freedom to worship as one pleases or not at all), right…

  5. Adding feedback brings you back to the beginning instead of the last page you were on. Time consuming!

    If you view feedback and vote or add a comment it scrolls back to the beginning of feedback. TIME CONSUMING AND ANNOYING.

    Bring back v 98.2

  10. Have any of you at AOL even tried reading an article?? Impossible to do, with all the ads covering the content of the article.

    Have any of you at AOL even tried reading an article?? Impossible to do, with all the ads covering the content of the article. There are only small bits of written material between the ads -- just a couple of lines between the ads.

  19. SOLUTION to try if your AOL DESKTOP GOLD won't load

    One of the techs told me the reason the AOL DESKTOP GOLD wouldn't load was because "the processes weren't closed in Task Manager". SUPER EASY FIX if this is the problem. 1. Put cursor at bottom of screen. 2. Right click and select START TASK MANAGER. 3. You should see AOL GOLD at the top of the processes, click on it. 4. Click on END PROCESS. Now get out of it and try opening your AOL DESKTOP GOLD - it should open. (The reason for the problem is that since the processes didn't stop, the computer thinks AOL GOLD is…
