Yeah! MSN hardly worked; MSN Explorer didn't open; Kazaa and Shareaza were on and off all the time; Games came second to Bandwidth needs of AOL - as did everything - for whatever the hell it was doing; when I go on Internet Explorer AOL has to be up! It was horrible! On a Month's free trial I could not go 3 Days before I went back to Freeserve for 9 Month! FREE!

I got onto them as I cancelled about their program and asked of ways I could get it without the Program; I asked for the telephone number so that I could just Dial Up (it didn't work taking the number of AOL! I hoped they would have an alternative!) They said that the program is a very integral part of AOL and not having it would take off a lot of the things that AOL give you - you would not be safe from Visuses! you would not be safe from Popups! removing AOL program and just getting AOL would destroy your computer! etc etc and so on - needless to say they loved their program and I had to stop it.

Yeah; butit really depends on what type of user you are - my Sister uses AOL and she is very happy with it; although I like to insinuate about its crapness all the time! For me and I'd imagine everybody on here AOL would not be right.

Its soooo bad; even Outlook isn't aloud to work! I asked them about that too and they said that they don't support Outlook! The biggest sinlge E-mail recieving Program and they don't support it! I asked how do I recieve my POP3 E-mails, and they said 'AOL can support recieving POP3 accounts with its Program' What! That was the final straw!

Well thank you, now I feel comfortable. I write virii's ONLY to learn more about computers. I release it on a test computer and then see how to get it off so I can learn more.

That is a very good way of writting viruses. Just for test purposes.

This poll is pretty much even!

Lol - the Dull Axe thing was said previous to my realisation of the 'two types of Hackers' - Hackers and Choppers. And by that I meant that Choppers should have their balls chopped (which is a bit ironic) off in public; with a Dull Axe.

That makes sense - the Virus thing - and I comend you for doing such a thing - if there were more people like you around there would be less Choppers!
