Pathetic that AOL will not let you cancel/delete a free account. They just tell you to stop using the account and that's supposed to be as good as deleting it.
Then you can just go right back to using it since AOL won't purge it from their system. What purpose does it serve AOL to keep inactive email/aim accounts? Advertising dollars perhaps? I can assure you AOL that from tonight forward everything AOL will be purged from my computer and my memory.
AOL you are a sad organization if you must keep a death grip on email users who want to purge their accounts. Pathetic.
