        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

        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.

        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.

        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.

        Stop this idiotic nonsense of allowing political pop-ups from political animals spouting their idiocies. The latest was from the idiot MSNBC late night character, who wears glasses. I immediately X'd him out, but he shouldn't be there in the first place!

        Let us opt out of all ads - if an ad pops up - I refuse to buy ANYTHING from them - ever because having the ad pop up is aggravating
