STOP your continual popup ads offering spyware protection, etc, etc when I open my email account! I did not ask for this. I have, in the p
If you are still seeing spyware pop-up ads on Aol.com, please persons to this post in a comment with:
- the information in the ad
- the url of the page you are on
- the browser you are using.
You should have a catagory called Stupidity ...People cant even read new articles , OR even some advertising because the advertszing is OUT OF CONTROL
The parent Verizon screws the consumer every way they can
Why does AOL still strain the internet with its worthless pop up ads?

simple stop misrepresentation or false ads by screening them
very sneaky, aol! you know that many people have some sort of ad blockers on their devices so now you disguise them as some sort of news story. 'mind blowing sheets every one wants' or 'this $60,00 bracelet all the stars are wearing; or 'look and see which stars are wearing this fabulous shirt', or more recently 'today only, insta pot for $55.00'. just ads made to look like some sort of news story to get around those ad blockers! nope, I don't fall for it because if you do, your pages suddenly get full of ads.
clean up the pages of **** (advertising) that seem to be important enough to have to jump through hoops to just read a simple story
STOP THE DISRUPTIVE FLASHING NAKED WOMEN OF 'MOD LILLY' AND 'LILLY GAL' ........ I AM A MALE, JUST TRYING TO READ MY MAIL WITHOUT CHUBBY WOMEN IN BATHING SUITS ..... I WILL NEVER BUY THESE ITEMS......... STOP IT PLEASE
Get rid of the **** ads that constantly popup. In the article about refusal to send Trump tax records to the house, I had to close the "see pictures of Mnuchin" seven times and gave up because each loading of the ads moved the page away from where I weas reading. I am ready to drop using aol as my home page.
Get 24/7 Wall Street off of my computer. It's a pop up screen when I'm looking for something else and very annoying just like all of the other overloaded advertising on your site. Safari looks better and better
There are so many pop up ads and redirects that it make all my Apple devices freeze up. Ad revenue vs Functionality. Viewers leave in frustration. Make your website stable.
We are dropping my families home account with AOL. Had enough. MSN SEEMS TO BE LESS ANNOYING.
I have your parent company Verizon horrible DSL. You waste even more with unwanted video. You do not allow me to block this. Must be time to put AdAware on this computer
Stop your awful popup ads !!!
STOP STOP STOP THE POP-UP ADDS
There is a Need to Improve Security. I am constantly getting bombarded by various PUP"s (Possible Unwanted Programs) when perusing your web pages. I am thankful that my AV blocks them before doing any damage. This issue seems to be prevalent on AOL pages and have not noticed that severe of issue when using MSN. Please do something to ensure the integrity of your site.
Talktalk email pages
I am totally fed up with this junk excuse for news
Every time I use email
We should be able to opt out for a blank page
Since you've become an Oath brand every couple days I've been getting a browser hijacking pop up telling me "Windows has detected your os is out of date and infected. Please click,,,"
I don't have any Windows product protecting my system and with the pop-up my only options are to either click where it wants me to or to control/alt/delete and shut down my computer.

The URL ?? Ad info?? Browser??
Just another way AOL is deflecting the obvious. If you're going to give me a story,,,******* just give it to me! I clicked thru like twenty frames to get to the end of the series and guess what?? NO STORY !
And how about today? The Insurance ad that pushes the front page down so that I have to scroll to get content.
It's ENDLESS !
I happen to be a Verizon customer. The other day my wife and I were in a furniture store and bought a sofa. So our phones "ratted us out" and now when I'm online AOL(owned by Verizon) puts ads up my nose trying to sell me ANOTHER couch !! LEAVE ME ALONE!!
As I stated before in my complaints about this - I WILL NEVER EVER BUY OR USE ANYTHING THAT YOU PUT IN FRONT OF WHAT I'M TRYING TO ACCESS ONLINE !
I click it off without even looking at it.
Money, Money, Money. When is it enough? Acquisitions, downsizing, takeovers....All supposedly better for the consumer. HA!
Turn on the TV,,,, There's SO MUCH Disney **** that I want to PUKE!
They have us hooked on Data now. I can't wait for this to resolve itself and give the public a real choice of "provider" Provider!! HA! Their hands are around our throats and they expect us to SMILE!
Just Stop. Wait a minute... I now have to agree to THEIR TERMS so I can submit MY comment criticizing their company.
These popups have slowed down viewing. I'm discussed with AOL.

By moving the buttons you are then able to say to Comcast, "Hey, look....your ads got 2 million hits!! Only they don't know the truth. 75% of them are unintentional clicks.
And just to reiterate my past criticisms, I WILL NEVER EVER BUY OR USE ANY OFFERING THAT POPS UP OR IS SHOVED DOWN MY THROAT !! NO MATTER HOW MUCH I MIGHT NEED IT.
I'll search for or use an alternative source. STOP TRYING TO MAKE MY DECISIONS FOR ME.
