Meh, someone probably had their auto-billing system shut off.

I'm honestly surprised AOL has hung around this long.

m1ke: I'm honestly surprised AOL has hung around this long.


They own Huffington Post, it's pretty successful. Obviously a far cry from the halcyon days of dial up internet in the early 90's, but they missed their revenue target by less than 1%.

They'll be OK.

My dad probably got a new credit card number and forgot to change his autopay settings.

Well, grandma's funeral WAS last month.

My in laws have had cable for about 2 years.  They still use AOL, though I hope they're not paying for it.

I still have an AOL address. It's totally free, and the UI on the web side is very spartan and well-laid-out.

// I've had this address since 1994, why should I change it?

Two out of my three sisters still have an aol e-mail address. (The other has hotmail)

In sadder news, that subscriber also fell and fractured her hip, so things aren't looking too good for her right now either.

You guys would be surprised how many people still have dial-up in rural areas because they can't get anything else. Seriously. It's really sad how we think that everyone has the internet everywhere with wifi and cell phones but it's just not true.

Only seniors still use AOL, and more of them keel over every day than any other age group.

Hello? Hello?  AOL are you still there?  I'm the remaining subscriber....

Rush Limbaughs Gay Porn Collection: Only seniors still use AOL, and more of them keel over every day than any other age group.


Now that's not true. I work retail and we offer an email newsletter signup deal (signup and get a 20% off coupon for any one item - very useful for getting something big, like a Kitchenaid mixer around Christmas). We turn in the forms every week, and the number of people in my area with AOL addresses is disturbing. Either they're all savvy enough to get around our blatant marketing ploy via giving old email addresses or they're morons. Considering I live on the Indiana/Kentucky border area, the former seems like a bit of a long shot.

Exactly. See no reason to change a free address that I've had for 2 decades. And my other aol email is perfect for my spam account.
