Making A Mission Out Of Unsubscribing People From AOL

The old joke was that "friends don’t let friends use AOL". It’s no secret that there are a large number of people out there who hate AOL - and many of them are former customers. Here’s an article profiling a guy who, for seven years, has chronicled any bit of bad news about AOL, while also helping convince people to unsubscribe (while also giving detailed directions - since AOL doesn’t make it easy).

I still have an account, but on the low 3.95 or something service because I just haven’t had time to call and cancel. In the past, its taken over 3 hours to get ahold of a rep, so I’m not too anxious to do that. So this is a note for myself . . . I can just fax it in! "To cancel your AOL account, FAX 801-622-7969. Specify that you’re cancelling, give your full name, phone number and address, and either the primary billing contact’s AOL screenname or the last four digits of the current payment method."

Strangely enough, when I faxed in my cancellation, it got "lost" a couple times and the service continued for a couple more months. I didn’t realize it was still taking it out of my account and it bounce, bounce, bounced it’s way through my life.

Did I just admit aloud that I use AOL? Sheesh. blush
