I have dumped AOL. After many years of putting up with poor service and inexcusable mistakes including confiscating my email they finally did something I could not forgive them for.
AOL has a rule in the fine print that says that we must NOT put a web link into any email!! Yep - it's there in the fine print. Take a look.
Well I had our website ( www.amrt.net ) on the bottom of my email and someone ratted me out - saying they found the amrt.net website "offensive" - this is the site for dogs and cats in animal shelters - not a porn site.
So AOL went in and changed my password. Oh yes they sent me an email explaining why they had changed my password. But I never got that email - because they had changed my password. And I never got the email that told me a litter of puppies needed out of the Downey shelter NOW. And thanks to AOL those puppies died that night. And I was on the phone for over an hour trying to get my email back.
So I called Earthlink and asked them if they had such a stupid rule and they assured me they did not.
And I dumped AOL - and I suggest those of you who feel the above is outrageous might consider doing the same.
though im still a little confuse about its fiasco though..
