    I have been a member of AOL since 1991, when it was dial-up. That's 31 years.
    Lately, it is clear that far-right elements are protected at the cost of everyone else.
    It is clear that my name--not just any comment-is the target of overbearing censorship.
    I will admit that I have transgressed against the Community Guidelines on a very few occasions; however, even--for a month now--when I have absolutely complied with the Guidelines, my posts are blocked.
    There is no method of redress, and I have called Customer Service several times to complain--only to be told that I need to log my issues on this forum--and being kept on hold by Customer Service for 30 or more minutes, or told--like today--that there is basically no solution but to wait, no method redress, no one I can converse with to unlock my ability to comment, that is simply stifling my voice with no clear reason anyone can or is willing to explain to me.
    There is no method by which someone whose name is obviously targeted for absolute censorship can find out exactly which comment(s) led to the censorship, or how to address the issue(s), or any kind of guidance pertaining to how to get a fair hearing about the issues or recision of censorship.
    I have reported AOL to the FCC repeatedly because this is a CLEAR violation of my freedom of speech.
    I fully intend to provide a transcript of this "idea" to the FCC in a continuation of my complaints against AOL.
    AOL: If you are going to act as the sole arbiter of censorship, you MUST provide a documented method of redress for people who are being censored. Anything less is yet another sign of the creeping fascism that threatens everything Americans hold dear.

    Someone commented that Putin should "Take into custody to prevent further bloodshed by the innocent or kill." I asked "And just whose responsibility is that {name not included}."
    Somehow, the censor(s) found that a violation of the rules. The RULES seem to be applied capriciously. After a number of such PURPORTED infractions I am blocked from any further postings on the article. How does that support honest, open dialogue, AOL?
