Stop the ads, nothing more nothing less AOL. lets start a cancellation policy
How about this, we all start to cancel our business with AOL until they rollback this ******* decision. They have taken advise from some clown or competitor to ruin a decent business. a 20 yr customer about to cancel.

Is totally out of control from the only provider i am aware of that charges for email !!!! SINNGLE reason I am staying is due to some historical value of old mail. Trying to figure out how to move that and I'm gone
Well I thought I was in this boat alone regarding the advertisements. Is this the only way to fund AOL's business. when I come to my email, I simply want to do email not have distracting advertisements popping up on the sides or anywhere else. Now after viewing all these comments. I don't think you care. I'm almost believing it's a sick joke to ask for feedback when you know you're not going to do anything about it. wow. I guess that's the society we live in today. if this isn't stopped by Sep/2020. Then I know I was right.
AOL's political bias is so upsetting. Stop with your liberal left wing ads.

I have been paying AOL about $12/month or $150/year for many years
many others on this comment thread are paying more per month
free Gmail certainly does not insert offensive advertisements into my InBox
and currently free Gmail does not show ANY advertisements when I open my Inbox
there are about 1000 commenters on this thread
if each of us terminates our paid AOL accounts
AOL will lose $150,000
if each of us recommends 10 of our friends terminate their AOL accounts
AOL will lose $1,500,000
I am not seeing the "win" here for AOL by their refusal to stop their invasive, deceptive and unfair practice of inserting advertisements into our InBoxes -- ads intended to make us think they are personal email and ads we have no way at all to block
I, and others on this list, are recording the names of those businesses which appear in these unethical emails inserted in my InBox, and will boycott those businesses
whose businesses will eventually figure out that these AOL InBox advertisements are actually causing them to LOSE THEIR CUSTOMERS, existing and new customers
this unethical conduct by AOL is also a foolish business practice
again, I am not seeing the "win" for AOL here
I am a LONG-term customer of AOL with rural internet --- I have to use a hotspot but now use up all my data just trying to get my email on AOL. I can ********* my phone but not on my computer because NOTHING will load. What is going on?? I am trying to administer a charitable organization, and this is ridiculous.
I understand now why I get "the look" when I tell people my aol address....Im over the ads and the opt out is a JOKE!!! and PAYING FOR IT??? im leaving...
stop the ads
these ads have to stop stop .....your killing me with this ****.I will never buy anything from theseads
I am not paying for email service to have ads plastered all over...why is free email like gmail without ads....I will cancel if it doesn't change. I hate having to click like 3 times just to get to my email box
im about ready to quit Aol with these ads that you CANT GET RID OF ! and im not paying more each month to do so

STOP THE ADS. Everytime I log on to my mail to my right are NON-STOP bathing suit ADS! I am so sick and tired of seeing half naked women, bare ***** and ****!! I am 76 years old I have done everything to try and BLOCK theses same ads and nothing I do will stop them. If this does not stop then I will cancel AOL.

ads really suck! I'm about to cancel my aol account after 10 yrs !
not to mention i can't log into my mail from google chrome SMH
The ad on top of my mailbox are the most annoying thing on my computer and that includes other ads to the side. Please take those ads out. NOBODY reads them and what a disservice to your AOL users.
How dumb to I have to be to want to see a stupid rubber duck when I open AOL?

Now as soon as I open my mail - the ad pops up and opens - including spam ones - so AOL has me automatically opening spam mail. I will now need to move off AOL mail for another service provider. Why is AOL trying to CORRUPT MY COMPUTER with viruses.
The ads should NEVER be sent AS Emails in my inbox.
They are blocking real emails from showing on my iPhone.
This change by AOL is outrageous.
I've been an AOL customer for close to 30 years, since the mid-90s, and I am so disgusted by the new tactic of placing an email AD at the top of my mailboxes. Very annoying.
At the monthly rate I am paying, I don't expect to have ads in my email screen. Please discontinue the ads.
Please stop all the ads. I don't know how they got on to the computer but I really do not appreciate it, nor do I ever read them or need them.
thank you for stopping them~
