    AOL Shutdown...

    Does anyone know what happened to AOL's stock when it shut down last time?(was it about 2 yrs ago?)
    I wasn't following AOL at the time so no clue....

    NOTHING is going right for this stock and yet this puppy is still above $120. I think this was predicted in the Book of Revelation. The end of the world must be coming when you see a stock with no fundamentals flying high at the PE of 500 led by a CEO who looks like Eric Robert Rudolph, and people are selling their houses to buy this crap....

    • You're starting to sound real paranoid again. The ethnic slurs are something new.Maybe it's time to brush off and repost the psycho(logical) profile.

      For the record, I thought IBatMyrtleBeach made entirely valid points. Now go back and take a few more tokes and take a try at.........back to Hydrogen again for you, moron.

    • See that Peak it formed, where shortly after it tanked, and didnt recover for over a year? That was when aol began to cause internal problems...as a result there were lawsuits, cancellations and a demand for better service...

      So we can only imagine what will happen NOW that it is even more ridiculously priced, not to mention that 11 million dissatisfied customers deserve compensation for last evening...Imagine 1$/customer times 11 million. That equals a pretty penny.

      Just one more piece of weight for the camels back :)

      • RBuddha,

        You said,"See that Peak it formed, where shortly after it tanked, and didnt recover for over a year? That was when aol began to cause internal problems...as a result there were lawsuits, cancellations and a demand for better service... "

        No kidding...I wasn't even interested in AOL at the time but remember hearing the news of AOL shut down. One thing I liked about AOL's reponse at the time was that Case was on TV immediately, explained what happened and told his plans to correct the problem. Where the hell is he now??? probably too busy calling his broker to sell his shares....

        "So we can only imagine what will happen NOW that it is even more ridiculously priced, not to mention that 11 million dissatisfied customers deserve compensation for last evening...Imagine 1$/customer times 11 million. That equals a pretty penny."

        Yeah, by the time Paikhanaghar(RIP) aka rowrowrowm finishes his brain cell counting, perhaps we'll play some golf in Maui with some of the profits we would generate by shorting this miserable stock.

    • Hey, this stupid Indian (as in India) moron Paikhanaghar is finally losing it! This is his fourth or fifth fake moniker??

      let's see...paik, rowrowrowm, toynut, 1bdaily, ibmyrtlebeach...

      get a life, loser!

      I though you were too busy counting the atoms in the periodic table. Now start counting your brain cells! If you count over 5, count again!

    • ... you don't even know what happened the one time this stock corrected? You don't deserve to know, but I'll tell you anyway... AOL gained SO MANY NEW CUSTOMERS IN MONTHS (SEVERAL MILLION) that it overloaded their ability to handle them (busy signals, etc.).

      Nayer's, as they always do, predicted bankruptcy, etc. AOL, to it's credit, quickly fixed those busy, slow, bottlenecks, WITHOUT A SIGNIFICANT LOSS OF CUSTOMERS! That's the only blemish on their record. You can bet they'll not let that happen again.

      For you nayer's who may say this is not true, I was a customer of AOL during that time, and have been ever since, and I say their service is SUPERB compared to 4 or 5 others I've tried simotaneously!

      PS: See today's USA TODAY glowing article on AOL's advertising strategies and prospects! It's still up, up and away!

    • Too many atoms. Carbon? Sodium? Iron?

      O lord give us a sign.

      How's the THC hangover?
