How can we improve AOL?

Please stop the auto play news boxes! I stop the videos and as soon as I move to the next item it starts up again! So annoying!

        strongly disdain automatic videos just under headlines. May have to seek another email service.

        The auto video doesn't stop when you opt out of it, there is something wrong and who would want that to auto play when you scrowl past it,this needs to go

        END the auto-play feature for all adds and videos. Just provide start and stop links, and we will watch or end when we choose.

        I'm not logging on to stop the videos from automatically playing...what I am doing is dropping aol from my viewing habits....I've had enough of the bs

        I click on something I want to look at or read as so as page loads the video starts up on it's own. I'd rather read the text. Then it's adds to start out, like your shoving adds down people throats!

        I'm sure there's an article here somewhere, but I can't read the damned thing because A NOISY VIDEO AD STARTS PLAYING ON THE PAGE AUTOMATICALLY AND BLASTING THROUGH MY HEADPHONES!!!! What is wrong with you people? Why do you do this to your readers? Let's torture the readers...yes, that will definitely increase page views!!!

        Stop the auto play ads....I've had it with the auto play ads. I enjoy looking as the news headlines, but I've had enough and am not coming back to aol for anything other to check my email....The latest ones won't even pause when clicking on the pause button......BYE BYE

        your video of inside edition on top of your front page has no way to shut it off and is placed in a spot too easily activated when yu dont want it. if you cant move it fast i will leave aol because it is outrageously intrusive

        I've previously solicited your assistance to mute the homepage videos -- without success, I might add. NOW, I can't even pause the playing of the video to make it go away. It's beyond annoying! Please give serious consideration to this request. I thank you in advance.
