American On-Line; a dumbass, piece of crap, excess-authority internet service that occupies all TV commercials and, seemingly, the entire internet itself. As many other people accurately say, AOL is extremely slow, is easily open to spyware and computer viruses, and may cause your computer to crash. AOL loves to wield its big, black "fist of fury" known as TOS, or Terms of Service, around in order to intimidate and threaten millions of the users; many of those users haven't done anything that could remotely be considered mildly offensive or illegal.
For all the bad service, unreliable connections, and poor reputations in dealing with online crime, junk email, spyware, and speed levels, AOL has the nerve to charge excessive monthly charges. They usually amount to well over $20 when the services provided mixed with the bullshit, pop-ups, and unnecessary authority are worth no more than three bucks. You AOL assholes. AOL: Assholes OnLine.
TOS is retarded. AOL only does this in the empty promise to keep child molesters and hackers off the Net. Also, those who threaten people in chat rooms when they will never meet the people that they are saying that they will beat the shit out of. But of course, AOL is too dumb to realize that most of these people jacking this bullshit in the chat rooms are most likely doing it just for fun, and even if they were in hatred against one another, the chances of those two actually coming in contact with one another are very rare. SO WHAT'S THE BIG DAMN DEAL, BITCH?
Now AOL is trying to control the music download business with a new service called "MusicNet@AOL". It's bad enough that AOL censors content and keeps track of what you see, now AOL wants to keep track of what you hear.
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!
Hey AOL lawyer: delete this!
america online, the crappiest and laggiest shit internet users can use. also way too much spam
"Welcome to AOL, You have new spam, dickhead."
a company that sends you free drink coasters.
person00: hey, we got a new aol coaster. this one is 6.5 it must be better than our last 4.0 coaster.
person01: cool, ill add it to the other 300 we have.
A really crappy ISP. This 'lawyer' who is trying to sue urbandictionary is just a stupid idiot who doesn't realize that this is a site where anyone can post their definition, and a lawsuit against it would abridge free speech.
Read the first amendment, you bozo!
The worlds most widespread computer virus. Packaged with almost every software, and even your magazines, and your personal mail, it is impossible to avoid. Al-Quaeda supports AOL. BURN THE AOL BEFORE THEY ATTACK AGAIN!
The AOL Virus Version 9.0 just came in the mail! Throw it in the AOL Crematorium!
A very generous company that sends you a free frisbee in the mail every other week.
I love my free discus! Thank you, AOL!

While the service does suck dogshit, and is incredibly slow at times, and is full of glitches, the REAL fun comes when you are cancelling your membership, because the representatives will do anything to keep you using the AOL service, and they don't seem to understand the word "NO".
Joe: I would like to cancel my AOL membership.
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?
