Many people I know have tried to cancel their membership with no success.
AOL rep: (After a long conversation)But we'll give you 2 free months free.
me: All I want to do is cancel my membership. I don't need it anymore, I have cable modem now.
AOL rep: But AOL is the best blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...
me: Please stop trying to get me to not cancel I already told you I don't want or need AOL any more.
AOL rep: But we have superior anti-virus software blah blah blah blah bah blah blah blah blah blah blah...
me: You are getting on my nerves and wasting my time.
AOL rep: But 2 free months blah blah blah blah blah blah...
me: fine whatever (I hang up after a lengthy conversation and at this point AOL has ruined my day and I'm pissed off)
I uninstalled AOL from my computer, and had to call my credit card company to report my card lost so I could get out of my AOL membership. I travel a lot, which is why I used AOL to begin with. Fortunately most hotels have high speed wireless internet access now.
AOL has been detected on you computer.
Wow, now AOL is sending me wooden, cardboard, and tin containers with AOL CDs enclosed.
Well that takes the piss....Thanks again AO fuckin' L!
Any song downloaded from the AOL MusicNet service contains DRM (Digital Rights Management) software code embedded in it. DRM is used so AOL and the RIAA can identify which AOL member is downloading which songs. If you don't believe AOL and the RIAA keep track of what you are doing online, you are a n00b. You obviously haven't read your AOL user agreement.
AOL sucks. Boycott AOL!
AOL Rep: Why?
Joe: I have found AOL to be expensive for my budget and I am switching to a cheaper alternative instead.
AOL Rep: $28 a month is not expesive!
Joe: It is when you are a college student, and if NetZero and Juno are offering the same Internet package for $15 a month.
AOL Rep: Alright. How about we just sign you to our Netscape plan for $19.99?
Joe: No thank you.
AOL Rep: Um....how about you tell us exactly how long you will not be using AOL?
Joe: Not ever again.
AOL Rep: You know, you are ruining my chance to get another pay bonus.
Joe: And I could care less. Please just cancel my account already.
AOL Rep: Shit! he's not as gullible as we thought.....did I just say that out loud?
