  1. Rerun articles

    Quit running articles over and over and over for months at a time. Ridiculous. Classic example is Kanye's rant. Has been popping up for months. WHY? Nobody cares.

  2. Why when I search a website do I get SOLICITATIONS TO BUY from the place

    I search a website one time and for the next two weeks my main page is filled with ads from the sites visited. Just because I visited a CARMAX website for example, I am inundated with ADS for their used cars. I AM NOT INTERESTED and it seems you probably profit from it. My searches are MY BUSINESS AND NOT YOURS!!!!!!!!!

  4. sign on screen make the username box bigger along with the arrow,you have plenty of room why don't you make it convenient for people to use

    Regarding sign on screen. Why don't you make the username box bigger making it easier to to log in . Above all the small arrow icon to change users. it's so small and light colored you need a magnifying glass to see it. I can't believe something that is used often is so small .Doesn't anybody that designed this ever tried to use it. You have to be a marksman to hit it with your mouse,every time I sign on it torques me that this was designed so stupid.

  6. TREATING US BADLY, WAKE UP!

    AOL, VERIZON, HUFEPOST,

    You sent an email request to take a poll regarding Lindsay Graham and then there were no box to check in favor of him.
    THERE WAS ONLY ONE BOX, HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK WE ARE....... WHY DO YOU TREAT US THIS WAY? YOU CAN'T TAKE A POLL WITH ONLY ONE CHOICE. WHAT MORONIC EDITOR ALLOWED AOL, VERIZON TO LOOK SO STUPID?

  8. Too much before I get to where I want to be

    PLEASE change it so that when I read a headline (like the one I read featuring Sam Elliott - where is he now?) I want to get to that article. I had to wade through myriad other celebrities before I got to him and it's not only frustrating but gets me darned angry. Give me what the headline offered, THEN put in the rest of the stuff. I'd be more inclined to click on the rest of the stuff if you don't force me to and give me what I asked for in the first place. Thank you.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. 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 ****.

  19. 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…

  20. 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
