  4. Why I don't bother with many articles.

    I don't bother reading many articles because when I click on them the first thing I get is a lot of background baloney instead of getting directly to what the headline was about. It's getting to the point that I'm ready to opt out of AOL and find another browser.

  5. Complaint re Ad.

    Your IPAD 2 commercial, shown today on your site. is major league misleading. Your 'come on' on the ad page makes no mention of refurbished. You cheated. Some of us would not take 'refurbished' as a gift. Addtionaly, the price drop is not much for a used tablet. Shame on apple, and aol for letting it by. Lying.

  8. News for you AOL - those back stories are mostly wasted. We don't read them, we just want to get what the headline noted.

    Why do you keep bothering with the back stories? I don't know anybody who reads them - we just scroll through them to get to the point of the headline.

  9. Mapquest

    MapQuest is much more difficult to use than it used to be. Users get flooded with ads and it is just more difficult to search for a location or get directions. Google Maps is so much easier. That's what I use now. Why don't you put that on the desktop instead of MapQuest?

  10. Aol Desktop Gold

    What a disappointment... if you want to print something you cannot preview and print from the same screen. You now get to "preview" then exit and go to the print screen. What a drag. Just another joyful AOL pile of ****.

  11. Terms Of Service seems to be selective in AOL Chatrooms

    AOL reestablished the use of REPORT in their chatrooms...and this sometimes results in a chatroom member losing their screen name for repeated violations...HOWEVER, not all TOS violators wind up losing their screen names and are bullying and harrassing other chatroom members in this one particular chatroom -- ROMANCE 60s PLUS LOVE -- several of the regular members brag that they are "protected" and will nevah lose their screen names while some trying to be honest and forthright lose screen names right and left....ARE THERE PROTECTED MEMBERS IN THE CHATROOMS AND IF SO WHY IS THAT SO? DID NOT THINK AOL…

  12. How do I stop what I think is IN THE KNOW by AOL-- a new, very annoying and impossible to stop series of unending videos.

    Put some way to stop and preferably kill IN THE KNOW which is just below the main AOL rotating items. It has no "X" to stop and kill it. Even with sound off, the on going series of videos is very, very distracting. My quick fix was to drag up the bottom of the screen. My long term fix may be go kill AOL and go elsewhere

  16. Desk Top Icon

    Do not want Icon on DESK TOP SCREEN since I have it on the TASK BAR. But I am constantly having to put same in the TRASH BIN, because AOL puts it on the DESK TOP every time there is an UPDATE. I can see the need once AOL is installed, but after that is annoying.

  19. Worse Journalism!

    Regarding your article on "Historical Figures that do not exist"
    There are multiple sources besides the Holy Bible that show Jesus Christ was a real person who existed. First of all, each section of the New Testament Bible is written by different authors who all agree in differing writings that Christ existed. 3 were His apostles (Peter, Matthew, John), one was a Roman Pharisee that hated those who followed Christ until his conversion (Paul), one was a physician (Luke), one was a young boy when he first met Christ (Mark); Other sources included Roman historical documents, Jewish documents and multiple…
