AOL CONSPIRACY?

I wanted to create a link to my new blog.

So I cllicked EDIT in my OTHER JOURNALS sidebar.

I cut and pasted the URL.

I clicked save.

It wouldn't link.

I clicked EDIT again.

I noticed that there was no URL only http://.  I erased that.

Hmm, did I make a mistake.

I pasted the URL in place again. Double checked it.

The same thing happened.  AGAIN.

This occurred four different times.  Well, we're up to eight now.  Twelve, now.

I enter the URL and it vanishes, leaving only http://.

Is there something I don't know?  

I'm sure if there is, someone will tell me.

Meanwhile, the reason I will leave AOL isn't the banners.  Although that's reason enough.
It isn't the fact that the services I pay for are offered to AIM users for free.

It isn't that AOL seems non responsive to our needs while they ram their new initiatives down our throats.

It's that on a day to day basis, the techs are idiots.  They break things that aren't broken. They come up with new bells and whistles they like, but can't add stuff we want, llike Spellcheck or a greater variety of fonts or fonts that don't default to other fonts., etc.  

Their recent implementation of the controversial banners has farked up my ability to post entries COMPLETELY.

WHAT ARE BETA JOURNALS FOR -- EXCEPT TO IRON OUT THESE KINKS AHEAD OF TIME.

And now I can't create a link to my new blog.

F-word F-word F-word F-word.

By the way did you know that on TV the censors will let you say someone is a DICK, but you can't say a penis is a DICK.

PFFT.  I still can't add an entry, use pics, save an entry, nothing.  It's always so fun when AOL 'updates."   ~Sie who is stockpiling her entries at http://siepfft.blogspot.com/

"AOL is too stupid to create a conspiracy."

Damn, Mrs. L., I haven't laughed that hard all week.

according to george carlin ... on tv you can prick your finger ... but you'd better not finger your prick.
