  4. Feedback re: Gold "look"

    Change the "look" from childish and whimsical to neat and professional. The former style met my expectations, The "Gold" version is not eye-friendly at all.

  7. Open in new window

    I really HATE that I can't right click on a link and select "OPEN IN A NEW WINDOW" instead of only a new TAB in the current window. GOLD is a gold plated piece of ****. CAN WE PLEASE HAVE 9.2 BACK?

  9. I really think your tech people don't know how to fix AOL GOLD. If they did it would not take to long to correct its many issues.

  10. New Ravel

    New Ravel is not 'News' as you have categorized it in the Welcome section. It is click bait. Please categorize it as such.

  12. In reviewing your complaints, the problem is obvious. AOL's executive management will not admit it has one.

    While AOL "news" seems only interested in progressive views, and why it purchased the Huffington Post, (not unlike Slate, DailyKOS, MoveOn with objectives not unlike Cloward and Piven), it has not paid attention to its bottom line.

    That is AOL is an ISP. In others words a place where I can immediately get online to the Internet.

    Having been with AOL well over 15 years, its AOL Gold is not Gold but the color of rust. While AOL's CEO has focused on being sure progressive news is spread through out its millions of members, he obviously has not spent the…

  14. Why can subscribers by the paid benefits for at least 30% less from the software companies direct then what AOL charges?

    Go online and you can buy Super Anti Spyware, Professional Edition for $19.95 which is 50% less then your fee of $3.99 a month. You can save at least 30% on all the other so called paid benefits. You call these benefits? How can you keep a straight face?

  18. Open Calendar on start up.

    I'm still looking to have my google Calendar open when I start AOL like Ver 9 could. You seem to have most of the programming in place under Settings-General-Main Open the following. Why can't you expand that to add a selection I add.

  19. New OATH agreement unfair to users

    The agreement AOL users are forced to sign with OATH voids class action suits and any other rights users might have for fair and reasonable service. I am actually paying for this service that's sole purpose seems to be generating ad revenue - hence 71 pages of repeating stories just for more advertising space. Unless you still want to buy a pair of solar eclipse glasses. There's far more suspicious spam than ever before and I'm wondering if it's because of this OATH.

  20. Why can't AOL management be contacted?

    Tim Armstrong: You people do a great job keeping the public at a distance. I am sure that cuts down on your work load. What I want to know is WHY is AOL so pro-black? Blacks compose 13% of the population of this country, yet everywhere I look on AOL it is black, black, black. I, and others, are very sick of this bias! Just remember WHO keeps you in business!
