you wanna laugh.... im an AOL account member!!! HOLD UR HORSES. let me explain. my dad pays for the account and the whole familly has a username. weve unfortunately had the usernames for soo long that it would be far to hard to get evryone to get our new email address if we did change..... so we just went to the lowest account price plan and our now only paying something like a couple of £ a month just to keep the usernames and check our email through the web!!! hehehe. havent dialled in for YEARS i fully agree AOL needs atomising for destroying the integritty of the computers sanity and patience!!!
