  1. GRAY BAR APPEARS OVER CHAT BOX

    WHEN I GO TO A CHAT ROOM IN THE CHAT COMMUNITY, THE CHAT BOX WHERE YOU TYPE IS COVERED WITH A GRAY BAR. THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN UNLESS YOU MAXIMIZE THE CHAT WINDOW. THE MINUTE YOU MAXIMIZE, THE GRAY BAR APPEARS COVERING THE CHAT BOX WHERE YOU TYPE. CAN YOU PLEASE FIX THIS?

  3. censorship in chatrooms

    Please explain your rationale (if any) for chatroom censorship.

    You cannot type the name of N. Korea's President, or the title of Cher's 1971 hit "Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves". You can't mention how many puppies were born in a litter. You cannot type the name of the star of the **** Van Dyke Show.

    There are dozens of other things where one gets the "violates our standards" message, many times for utterly innocuous things.

  4. ADG

    Technical Support instructed me to identify my problem to this address.
    My emails are being downloaded to the wrong folder and I was told by
    Don, a supervisor, that the engineering department would have to change to the correct folder.

  5. Be correct.

    Chicago got it's nickname of the "windy city" from the hot air the politicians blew, not from the air wind.

  7. Trivia Today questions and answers - answers aren't always accurate.

    Today's question on Trivia Today asked how many stomachs a cow has. A cow has only one stomach (which was my correct answer) but it is divided into four compartments. It does not have four stomachs which was the answer that was deemed correct. More care should be taken in this regard to make sure that the answer that is deemed correct is, in fact, correct. In this case it was not.

  9. Check out your advertisement and advertizers

    Please don't accept advertising from "Just Fashion Now". They are a scam outfit. Check the negative reviews And get a sense of how truly dreadful the company is...continuing to carry prominent ads from this company leaves AOL and legitimate advertising less credible.

    All these comments & suggestions are fine. Problem is AOL ignores commenting at all to them. I have had problem downloading "Free McAfee" (computer cannot) and spelling dictionary saves nothing when "Save To Dictionary" clicked. They have been "Working On It" for months now and ignore commenting when I email or write asking when; etc! Have to call and they cannot help or supply any answer of truth or value. Only thing working consistently is AOL collecting money from us. Welcome Screen for long time also says no local news available. A little AOL customer care (actually shown) would go…

  19. AOL GROSSLY UNRESPONSIVE TO PAYING CUSTOMERS

    AOL needs to listen to its customer base and at least provide as much as we had before the OATH takeover. I mean, how can they get away with that? AOL GOLD is becoming colossally embarrassing, sort of like Trump.
