The attitude cited here, along with the swamp of unsolicited email received at AOL is the reason we left that "on-line" service. This "advertisement" was received on one of the daily tipsheets as a part of my subscription to PC Worlds - "Netscape Tip World". I felt it expressed my feelings well and have incorporated it into our site with these additions. There are a wide variety of ISP's available with better service, and a better service attitude, than AOL. Obviously, I endorse I-Way.net. I also endorse AT&T Worldnet, my current ISP. This endorsement "may" be withdrawn - pending the outcome of the flood of protest prompted by their announcement March 31st 1998 that they plan to discontinue (and leave current subscribers hanging) their Unlimited Usage Price plan and replace it with a "Standard" Price plan limited to 150 hours/mo + $0.99/hr for hours over 150 hrs/mo.

Also for your amusement, and consideration, I include the following links to external sites. With no endorsement as to their content, just interesting sites I have visited as a result of searching for sites using the following query - "Info for AOL Users" - in preparation for helping an AOL customer upgrade their Internet browsing capability.
