  3. Politics

    You wear your anti-Trump bias on your sleeve and it is pathetic. AOL is supposed to be for America, and your posture is destructive and politically motivated. I hate to open AOL each day and read your bias spin. Please stop, especially during this time in our country when you serve no good tearing us down. You obviously did not get the memo that "we are in this together" - you'd rather play politics and sow discord.

  6. AOL FOR CRYING OUT LOUD DO NOT CONTROL MY SETTINGS BY PRE-CHECKING THE "STAY SIGNED IN" BOX WHEN I AM SIGNING IN. KNOCK IT OFF ALREADY!

    DO NOT CONTROL MY PRIVACY BY PRE-CHECKING THE "STAY SIGNED IN" BUTTON WHEN I WANT TO CHECK MY EMAIL. IF I WANTED TO STAY SIGNED IN, I WOULD CHECK THE BOX -- DO NOT EVER DO THAT "FOR" ME. E-V-E-R

  7. Spam Blocking

    Your spam block is worst in industry, takes forever to block and then it doesn't work. Google and Apple let me simply block them with one click and done.

  11. ADS

    ADS ON INCOMING E-MAILS...REALLY AOL???!!!
    The ADS at the TOP of my incoming e-mails are worse than SPAM to me.
    NOT APPRECIATED!!!
    AOL, PLEASE, Get rid of these unwanted ads. What a nuisance!
    Bad enough they used to be over on the side...but now at the top of the e-mail list and easy to get clicked on in error!
    BIG, BIG mistake AOL!

  13. Spam Settings

    This a complaint more than an idea for improvement. On 8/24/18 the spam controls for one of my email address has stopped filtering out spam. I add address to the "Block mail from addresses I specify" box but emails from those addresses keep coming. The whole mail controls page for that email address has changed, My other email addresses have remained unchanged. What gives??? This is very inconvenient.

    Due to recent adjustments to the AOL Mail platform, the Spam Settings customization, are no longer available for all accounts. We apologize for the inconvenience. In order to block a specific sender, go to Options – Mail Settings – Spam Settings and add the email addresses in the box below “Block Mail from Addresses I Specify”, then click Save Settings at the bottom, and in case you receive unwanted emails in the Inbox, mark them as Spam.

    I really hate checking my email on AOL because of AOL's political bias. I wish the company would just remain neutral. I feel like I want to puke every time AOL puts a big photo of Hillary Clinton on the screen were I will have to look at it when need to login to check my email.

  16. AOL BIAS

    It is quite obvious that AOL has aligned itself with the liberal media.

    AOL is similar to Facebook, Twitter, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, et al.

    Every time I log onto AOL I see a New Headline that is either blatantly “anti-Trump” or “Anti-Conservative”.

    The liberal bias of AOL has become both quite obvious and disturbing.

  18. Allow Users Responsibility For Their Account Passwords

    I am sick of your system not allowing users to set my password to what they want by giving notices saying "Your new password is too similar to your previous password" or other such messages. I understand that you do this for security, but as the account owner I want to set my password to what I want and so long as I have not been hacked my password is still safe no matter what it is even if it was the exact same as the previous password. STOP MAKING THINGS MORE DIFFICULT FOR USERS BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE…
