 Amazing Stories. Hackers speak on AOL
Though AOL has implemented procedures to detect patterns of usage of AOHell, and has thus been able to terminate a substantial number of AOHell users and track some of them down, people are still using the program.
We made it clear that the only purpose of AOHell is to abuse the AOL service and that a number of issues their investigating (i.e., child porn, computer crimes, etc.) are attributable to AOHell users because they have unbridles access to AOL.
When aol discovers a phony number they do not try to trace the user (even though they use caller id to validate checking account customers which would be the easiest fake) they simply destroy the account.

 Internet slang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With the rise of instant messaging services (ICQ, AOL, and MSN, among others) the vocabulary has expanded dramatically.
So common has it become, in fact, that it has made the jump to deliberate usage particularly when satirising newbies; a common example is referring to the internet as "teh internet" or "teh internets".
Recently, New Zealand allowed students to use a type of internet slang known as "txt speak" in school and on tests so long as their answer is just as clear and grammar or punctuation are not the subject of the test.

She could then select a screen name close to her own name and define it according to who she really is. At other times StrayCat may like to pretend to be a man—engaging in virtual cross-dressing, and all that might bring with it.
So in AOL you are given a fantastic power of pseudonymity that the “code writers” of real space simply do not give.
There are places in AOL where people can gather; there are places where people can go and read messages posted by others.

 ONLINE ORIGINAL: Loving AOL--Before Time Warner
The new company, essentially 55% AOL and 45% Time Warner, is projected to have higher cash flow, but slower earnings growth.
In the spirit of regaining some long-term perspective, it's useful to go back to the responses from AOL "believers" and "doubters" (in the convention of last week's story), even though they were sent in before the deal with Time Warner was announced.
Many said that AOL is so much a part of their kids' lives that its future is all but ensured.

 Mac News: News: Innovator Andreessen is AOL's Loss
Last week, just seven months after AOL bought his company, it was announced that Netscape co-founder Marc Andreessen will step down from his post as America Online's chief technology officer.
In corporate-speak, what AOL really means is that Raduchel's management philosophy is more closely aligned with its somewhat linear vision of the online world: Let's make more money by boosting membership.
AOL's corporate line is that Andreessen will still be working part-time for the Dulles, Virginia-based company -- helping them with technology issues.

Hey, even with the AOL data there's still an amount of deniability, but it's appalling that anyone should be put in the position of having to deny anything.
This disclosure contradicts AOL's own privacy policy, which names search data as being part of a user's network information, says that a user's network information will only be disclosed as described in the privacy policy, and makes no mention of just publishing the data for public research.
AOL released a large database of searches that includes 20 million web queries from 650,000 AOL users.

 AOL Loses Battle to Protect Identity of Client :: MostlyCreativeWorkshop :: Reviews and News Done Right
In April 2001, AOL filed a motion to quash Nam Tai's subpoena; arguing it should not be required to reveal subscriber information because it would "infringe on the well-established First Amendment right to speak anonymously."
AOL argued that Nam Tai's complaint did not merit setting aside First Amendment rights, but the lower California court had disagreed.
If AOL goes back to the court in Virginia and it still rules against AOL, the company could then appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

 BW Online | January 14, 2000 | After the Deal, Will Investors Keep Loving AOL?
Then a few days later, AOL announced a $183 billion deal to purchase Time Warner (TWX) for stock, and the whole debate shifted.
Their focus nowadays is on number crunching as they try to put a dollar value on shares of a company that by the end of the year will be rechristened AOL Time Warner.
Merrill Lynch analyst Henry Blodget estimates that if the merger goes well, the stock could trade at $90 in a year (see BW, 1/24/2000 "Running the Numbers on the Deal,") and the rise Jan. 13 shows that some are using the setback as a buying opportunity.

A spokeswoman said AOL plans to focus on its U.S.-based target audience and has not announced intentions to re-enter the China market.

The top story on Digg as of now is entitled "AOL has destroyed the English langauge with chat speech." Needless to say, it's preposterous that AOL could be blamed for people using--gasp--abbreviations.
The comments on Digg are actually more interesting to me than the actual story.

Emoticons and jargon abbreviations predate AOL; you're ignoring a rich, varied history of MUDs and MOOs and BBSes in favor of one fairly recent, obnoxiously dumbed-down, dominant brand.
One person posts WOHRNDLKSNDNF and 40 people ask what the hell that means, four or five post their intrepretations and add something along the lines of 'you idiots', several others defend the first, a flame war happens and it ends up with the original poster saying 'My cat stepped on the keyboard, sorry'.

 LearnLeetspeak.com - What is leetspeak
They do not consider the use of extreme short forms (such as " b " for "be", or " u " for "you") as leetspeak; instead, they refer to it by such terms as " AOL speak ".
This is because they associate such habits with users who use ISPs like AOL, which is associated with " noobiness " and therefore not considered "elite".
The chief difference between leetspeak and AOL speak is that leetspeak has the goal of obfuscating traditional written language while in AOL speak the goal is primarily to shorten words (and therefore allow "n00bs" to be able to communicate more quickly).

Posted - 07/18/2003 : 11:51:31 AM I can't stand people that always have to shorten words when they type and use "AOL speak." In fact, it's almost as annoying as "leet speak." For those that aren't aware of "leet speak" it is normally spelled 7331 sp34k.
Also, for me the respect I have for a fellow forum user is increased when they type in a more mature manner, but with the influx of younger and younger people on the internet I'm realizing that "AOL speak" and "leet speak" are just things I'm going to have to deal with on the internet.

It is absolutely imperative that AOL users add the email address of incoming newsletters to their address book known as "People I Know" in AOL speak.
You can see the graphic instructions that advertising.com uses to show their AOL subscribers how to make sure they receive emial newsletters they signed up for here.
Unfortunately that also means that all too often emails sent by us (or any other email provider) to an AOL account may be filtered out or not received at all depending on the settings.
