No, it's great! My kitties keep looking over in bewilderment when I get an IM: they're convinced there's another cat in the room.

Haha...I didn't know we had an AOL employee here. People are stupid, but a lot of them complained that:

1) AOL charged them before their trial period ended, as they had no intention of actually paying for it. A lot of this came from people who bought new computers with free AOL on it for a limited time.

2) They contacted AOL by phone repeatedly, still being charged for the service later.

Of course, I'm sure a lot of these people have trouble turning on their computer, let alone deal with an online service, so who knows...

did you hear the anecdote about the guy who couldn't get sound from his pc and got the repair guy to try and fix his sound card but nothing worked? turns out the fellow forgot to turn the volume up his speakers.

I would guess this boils down to the idiot factor.

This is a problem in my opion for sure. the customer service folks always want to keep people on the service - so when people call to cancel they sometimes give them free time. the user still does not want it and then once the billing starts again they are pissed. insane if you ask me.

It deals with the serivce a retention goals.
We created similar programs with the ISP I worked for - but we tried not to give away the service.

But, if they do not want the service - you HAVE to cancel it.

go to Keyword: Communicator. You will find a new AOL email client that is not a total piece of crap. Communicator will let you use POP and IMAP protocols, manage multiple accounts, sync with your AOL address book, etc. It is in preview release right now, but is pretty sweet. Also has an intergrated AIM Client and can be used simultaneously with the general AOL mail system. Lots of FAQs at the keyword

Use an external browser.

I thought AOL 7.0 was junk when I tried it, but it was a free trial and AOL internet access is better than no internet access. They gave me about 7 months free. I like 8.0 quite a bit...and you can turn off the meowing sounds in IM if you want. AOL won't let you use your own buddy icon like AIM will. But they have a lot to choose from...sadly, no U2 icons. And I get toooooooons of spam in AOL because all they have to know is your username...spammers just collect names from people who go in chatrooms, because they don't even have to go in the rooms to see the usernames in them. AOL is certainly not worth what people are paying for it, though. It's a total ripoff. If they charged a lot less for it it might be a good deal. And yeah, it does mess with computers...it crashed mine a few times, but most of the time it works ok. That's all the input I have. I'll shut up now.
