I have to agree with a lot of previous comments. I have been with aol for the simple reason is that it works. It's reliable and easy for people to remember your address. LIke everyone else, I use other mail too, but my main go to is AOL.
I also have to agree with many in that I cannot stand Huffington. It's so far to the left that it's pretty much worthless info. There is no semblance of neutrality as far as politics is concerned.
I know you can just ignore it and go to news from another source, but it would be nice if you didn't have to leave AOL to do that.

Actually, p03, you don't have to leave AOL to get news from sources other than HuffPo.
While there's still a lot of Huff-'n-Puff left-leaning news there, AOL has made it possible to select news from other sources. Below the main/large slide-show of stories on your AOL main/home page, there's a drop-down menu that offers various/alternative sources of news -- including Fox, but there are others, too.
Check it out. You might be plesantly surprised.

We've been together since 1994 and our relationship is still strong!

I've had issues with AOL...like too much spam and not being able to block some emails, but I've also had them since 1994, so I'm entitled to complain. They all got issues.

I have told AOL that if I had to deal with Huff&puff post for news and have to wait for the commercials to quit and the page to stop popping up and down snd shake all over I would quit AOL.
Oh well I guess the guys with the money out rank me because it has only gotten worse.
Another thing that drives me crazy is
the fact that every time there is an up grade it wrecks a lot of other stuff and sometimes takes days for them to make the changes to the changes. It's time they listened to us, the people that give them the money.

Been with AOL since the beginning! One problem I find -lately with the HuffPuff blogging is being coersed into signing up-on FaceBook-to post commentary-

Exactly how I feel. What does face book have to do with it?

Readers should be able to leave comments, indicate favorites, etc. without a Facebook page, cell phone number, etc. If the publisher wishes to make online dialog more civil, then intelligent monitoring of comments is acceptable. Keeping the new requirements means losing this reader. I will not give out my private cell phone number, and I refuse to provide more personally identifiable information to post comments than is required to vote in US elections!

I got on AOL in the mid 80s when it was a bulletin board in competition with compuserve. Never changed. Very few problems in almost 30 years. I think I will just stay with it.

I think twitter should be confined to 12 year olds. Does anyone care about the last time Tiffany went to the mall and what she bought?

The only thing I miss about AOL are the old PROFILES. The one difference between AOL and others (promised by AOL) was our profile. Simple to maintain, simple to use. A little less flash bank bombadier ads and a little tighter screen arraingement, and I would pay a monthly fee to AOL. It has always been worth it.

I agree, they need to return to some of the old AOL especially the Profiles.
