I guess I've never understood the appeal of AOL. I actually, back in 1994 or 1995 started with compuserve for a year or so, then I went to a local dial-up before moving onto high-speed cable.
Those of you who have used AOL, tell me why, please?
AOL sucks. They get their business from sending junk mail to people's houses (unsoliticited), and hope that a few suckers will install their "software". And like most corporations, I would not be surprised if they weren't also getting some money in underhanded ways.
But now you've got me thinking.
Those bastards sending me unsoliticed junk mail is a bigger infringement on my Rights than *any* infrigment on AOL by the employees that had guns in their cars.
I started with AOL in 1994 and left them in 1995, one year was enough for me as well.
The chances of me using them again, slim and none.
AOL should change it's name to "internet for dummies"
I used it when I first got on the internet because I was very computer illiterate at the time and didn't know how to get on-line.
The first time I used an ISP elsewhere I cancelled AOL and went to an individual isp.
Most people on aol don't have the sense to do that.
