i'm not sure who i want to kill more comcast or aol, but im definitely leaning toward aol. right now in my house i have comcast cable which gives me internet access, however my mom is an internet n00b so she keeps aol. anyway the wiring for our cable is a little screwy so about once a month it goes out for a coupel hours and then will come back. but in august it was different, it went out for a couple days. during one of those days i had enough so i decided to take the aol 9.0 disk and stick it in my computer. i logged on, they gave me the list of access numbers, they had three categories: preffered, less preffered and some other shit. i clicked on all of the preffered ones, all of which shared my area code. so i log on and surf the internet for a large portion of the day.

then yesterday i went to unistall aol which gave me crap. i've been having a battle with the software to try and stop it from starting up, but it's impossible to kill.

anyway here is why i am so pissed off, the phone bill arrives today and from that 1 day when the cable went out and i installed aol the phone bill is around 100 dollars. the majority of which stems from one of those aol numbers. 856-319-9718. which was i belive the first number they recomended. they ask for your fucking number so that the number they give you doesn't cause shit like this. i can not accurately express in words how thoroughly pissed i am. i want to call up aol and shove it down some guys throat, but it won't make a fucking difference, that's just some kid getting paid nothing to take service calls. i want to speak to whoever fucking wrote this software

AOL does suck, you need to get it sorted out though, cos then otherwise you're stuck with a $100 bill.

I hate AOL aswell, i would like to help you in the killing of America Online. I will bring in my massive drop ships and drop off some b432 Plasma tanks and you can take it from there. Another way you can cause war is sue their ass for faulty advertising.

ok.. first i may be a little wrong with my facts here, i inadvertantly drank a whole bottle last night and reality is still playing catch-up..
i don't have aol, never have, so i don't know if that's just how the deal is with them..
but i do use comcast BB.. here in TN they have been appalling all last month, we had the pole monkeys out 3 times and it all boils down to (this is what they say anyway) with the fact that HDTV is being ushered in too fast for them and they have to comply or clear channel (?) will fine them, they have been upgrading systems and having to close things down routinely without warning.. they say the deadline was sept 1st and to be honest all has been good since then.. we had a rebate for loss of service and are happy now, well.. we'd be happier if there was an alternative provide but there you go..
get comcast to pay aol, might happen..

Fucking aol sucks. I once wrote a poem about it. It's in Writer's Block somewhere, but I'm too lazy to look for it right now. :blah:

Well acually its the choice of retarted soccer moms thinking its the "perfect" ISP for their 16 year old son cant handle the internet. They purchase it in the hopes of safe fast internet but all they get is a ram eating slow downloading assrape of a ISP.

Yes, AOL has been sued because of bullshit like this!

It's amazing how people can get ripped off so easily by their internet service, since now adays we can't live without it. The truth is, that internet service providers don't need to do shit to keep their services good, I mean, it's either you have no choice but to keep using them, or they'll just find another helpless victim to take your place. Cheers

Hmm....I've been hearing from quite a few people that Comcast is pissing them off. Kill AOL first though.
