I used AOL at one point, but only out of desperation. I'm sure the bastards took an extra 50 quid off my credit card as well. On the whole the AO Hell program was bulky, patronising and annoying. I couldnt connect to the internet without opening AOLs browser and if I wanted to use IE I would have to minimise aol and have ie open. Which meant the two programs were open at once and using more system resourses. When you try and cancel, they persuade you to have some extra free hours and you have to tell them outright that your not interested. Thats frustrating. The worst thing is that you have to give your credit card number in the first place to get the 'free' hours.
I still think the internet should only be for computer geeks, but hey, those days are over with
I couldnt agree with you more
