Hooboy raises a very important point in 5/4/2000

news about AOL blockers. If you are an escort or client with an AOL account and are communicating with a party that has a web-based email account (e.g., hotmail.com or yahoo.com) or even another ISP account (e.g. pacbell.net), AOL often returns mail to non-AOL accounts as undeliverable because they put on these blockers (often without your knowledge). AOL claims that it cuts down on "spamming" but I think a big part of it is competition.

 

So if you are an AOL user and are "bitching" about not getting a response from a query sent to an escort/client that has a web-based e-mail service, it may be due to these blockers. So, either open up your own free web-based e-mail account or tell AOL to "knock it off" and stop putting a block on your incoming e-mail.

Actually, it's really easy for any AOL user to choose to receive all mail or to block certain types (including blocking all mail from outside of AOL). All the user has to do is go to Mail Controls.

 

I'm a software professional with many years of experience in a lot of different areas of the business. And I'm also a very happy AOL user. AOL works well for me both at home and when I'm on the road.

 

AOL gets bashed all the time and people urge AOL users to move to the "real" Internet or to get a "real" ISP. But I find AOL is everywhere, provides very good access even in the smallest small towns and, for me, provides good value.

 

I access the Internet for all kinds of different reasons and I sometimes use the AOL internal browser and sometimes IE5.01. IE5.01 provides features and functions that the AOL browser does not and, for retrieving favorite links, maintaining many open windows, etc. it's better and I use it -- on top of AOL.

 

But there are many sites where the AOL browser provides faster access, sometimes very significantly faster access. For example, I always access the New York Times site through the AOL browser -- it's a couple of times faster than through IE.

 

The AOL chat rooms are a good way to meet people when you're in a new city and find out what's happening, where to go, what restaurants or clubs are good, etc: people are generally very, very friendly and it seems like there's a M4M room for virtually everywhere these days.

 

And, finally, on this day in particular I am once again happy that I use AOL mail, instead of Outlook. My email is up and running and my files are safe. The same cannot be said for the newest Outlook-based virus, the "I love you" virus.

 

So, while HB and others love to bash AOL, there are many of us who like it and find it works very well for us.

I have an AOL account. I was an AOL stockholder, but that's anoher story. I made a lot of money off of AOL. I went to school with Steve Chase, the chairman of AOL.

 

AOL offers a wonderful service, especially to people who are not computer geeks. However, AOL regularly changes your preferences without telling you. That's why those pop-up windows will suddenly show up even though you've said you don't want them.

 

The fact that you say that AOL is faster is a trick AOL utilizes, which is why every single day of the week -- EVERY DAY - I get an email message from an AOL user who says he cannot see the latest reviews.

 

Yep, my friend, you're seeing things faster because you're just seeing older content that is stored as "cookies" on your computer. It's an AOL trick that Steve Case is very proud of.

 

Do I plan on cancelling my AOL account? No.

 

Will AOL be around in 5 years? Who knows.

 

Is Steve Case smart? Yes

 

Is Gerald Levin Smart? Yes

 

Will they be able to work together? Who knows. I think not, but that's another discussion.

 

There are free internet services and I think AOL is overpriced, but if you are happy with it, stay with it. Plus they have a commmunity of over 20 million people, which is why I keep my account.

 

AOL is very a very powerful entity and I personally feel they abuse their power. My friends, if you are an AOL subscriber, they have access to your computer and they can see all and they can and can change things at their own will. Just ask many of the escorts here.

 

Sieg Heil! AOL

Hi Hooboy -

 

You said:

First, I don't those pop-up windows. The windows that pop up for me are the ones I ask for. I can't remember the last time I got something else. I also cannot remember ever having had my preferences changed on me: I set them once and that's where they stay. And I have different preferences set for different screen names and they've all stayed where I wanted them.

 

In terms of browser speed, all browsers use the cache to speed things up. However, you cannot use the cache to speed up access to pages that you haven't seen yet. And I have proven to my own satisfaction that the internal AOL browser is faster than IE5.01 at accessing certain sites, including accessing new pages. In fact, the difference between AOL and IE5.01 is greater than it was with AOL and IE5.00. And, in case someone is about to ask, I've applied all relevant updates to the system.

 

AOL's browser is faster at some things and IE5.01 is faster at others. So I use the right tool. And I'm happy. :-)
