    @itscoldpadda @EmpireStateDev @NYGovCuomo They are PURE SHIT. If you liked AOL dial up back in 1997, You will absolutely love Hughesnet. The service goes out in the rain. Even if it is just drizzling. I live in the country. It's my only option. Hughes will tell you $40 for installation. The installer charges $80- $130

    @Redpainter1 I spot weird uneducated rightwing blowhards all day 'cause they're typing shit like Kno how 2b 4 the rite side (lol smh)? etc. Like it's 1999 and AOL is shit-hot and they're convinced that infallible wisdom is cascading from their asses.

    @0xMatt BTW, that's because $client.{CFO} "didn't like" Pidgin which was deployed specifically because AOL/IM 6 was running "just fine" on XP (not on W10x64). (I finally got $client onto Slack but ONLY because AIM shut down and after 100s of "I don't XMPP. Can we have AIM back?"s.)

    @DuchessStoHelit Ahh. I remember using a comp by then (my parents divorced in 2000 so it’s easy for me to remember pre-2000 activities!). We had one in my dad’s office and I had games on it. We had aol but it was really really slow and I don’t remember using it for anything other than Ask Jeeves!

    @CNN These 6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America .. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn't own AOL, so Huffington Post isn't affiliated with them. NEVER MENIONED BY U during 8 years of Obama huh

    @ItsCaptainDisco In a way, I guess. It was a term used in older online RP to reference the player while in character. We used it a lot back on AOL, but I've never seen it in use on Twitter.

    I guess AOL by Oauth changed their IMAP settings and didn't bother to update them. The e-mail clients I use won't work even with the settings the website shows. Wtf is going on!? Do I HAVE to chance that POP3 will or won't work? #aol #oauth #mail #email #settings #notworking

    @AOLSupportHelp When a company is taken over, as AOL was, it should have a moral obligation to provide the customer a service based upon which they based their original selection particularly for something as basic as email - I joined AOL because they offered immediate telephone support.

  • alok_chander
    Alok (@alok_chander) reported

    @AOLSupportHelp I have had no email for several days and it is ridiculous that you don’t offer telephone support anymore - a Verizon owned company, you have the resource - just do it - awful management decisions with no regard to CUSTOMER impact.
