    Possible

    I have tried other ISP's, and AOL has been the premier provider. Yes, It's access problems were very bad when I joined it last year. But, it's reactions to those problems have been extraordinary! I bought a large (gulp) interest very recently on the belief it's going to be the Microsoft of the ISP sector. If you think AOL has weak service, try any others, including Compuserve!

      • I use earthlink as well and it's a fine ISP, but
        it has no content. At some point AOL will be able to
        leverage its content in the way it leverages its
        subscriber base. The free content available on the web, such
        as this and other investment boards, is pathetic.
        Real discussions about investing don't happen here
        because there are so many assholes who think they can
        influence a stock's movement through hyperbolic postings.
        Anyone who reads these boards for anything but
        entertainment -- the kind of entertainment one gets by reading
        books on abnormal psychology -- is naive, to say the
        least. Look at Silicon Investor and The Street. For
        about $10/month you can carry on relatively informed
        conversations and avoid the idiots and charlatans.

        have many friends and relatives who use AOL. Most of
        them aren't computer geeks and that's a good thing.
        AOL is building its business on people whose lives do
        not revolve around computers, which is the majority
        of computer users. What these people want is
        content. And that's what AOL gives them. This is where the
        growth is. (EOM)
