Alright, I realize that I should know this by now, but I have never had the need to use them before until now. I am currently out of work so I can no longer afford my old ISP so I installed & signed up for one of those AOL 50 day free trial thingys. I mean the internet service is good as far as you don't get dropped too much or anything like that but what annoys the fuck out of me is all of their stupid pop-up advertising on your initial login.
WTF is that all about? ... Forced advertising
yeah, like that's really going to make me want to upgrade to their paid service when my trial expires. it's like they are all ready shitting on you before they even get your business.
Call me crazy, but if you are trying to sell somebody something on a trial basis, don't you think that you will try and give them the best possible experience they could have so that they would be pleased with your service and come back? So why is AOL shoving those annoying pop-ups down your throat?
You know what I don't understand is that in my small (independent) business's I always treat my customers like gold and I can't seem to make a lowsy dime, But have you ever noticed that most of the really large successful business treat their customers like shit?
I don't get it????? ...well anyways AOL can kiss my ass!
Yahoo for instance. I love yahoo and all of their great free services, but did you ever try to submit a web link to them, or try to contact them about anything? ... They will never get back to you and they will never add your web links to their stupid directories. So I am coming to the conclusion that if you have money you don't need to have customer support or relations, you can just basically do whatever the fuck you want and still make money off of your fucking sponsors/advertising.
I don't think they even have editors over there?
Oh well ... enough bitching for now .. lol
