HEY AOL......This Bank of America ad on the top of my journal really does not go along with my idea of keeping my journal a joyful place and a place that doesn't promote greed. My journal is a precious spot for me as is this journaling community. It is the ONLY reason I have AOL. TAKE THE ADS OFF OF MY BLOG!!!!!!!!!! If you do not I will just find another nice place to take my business...

  1. Agreed we have rights on  AOL  and we should have a spot where our thoughts ideas and even just our venting is allowed with out AOL sponsorship
    don't they get enough FREE AD space in Every IM Every Chat and Every pop up we dont want?  When is it What we pay which is way over enough.. becomes enough with out them doing this sell sell sell theme
    I hope AOL takes us  serious  even our  research is all SALES
    and we cant find the things we need for research do to this sell sell sell greedy theme. they have going. I again hope it is finally heard

  4. My save does not work on my journal entry.   AOL is sinking.   Write me if you take one of the lifeboats out Val.  lol   Hope your day is going well.   I had to rest for several days during a weather change that had me down.   Just doing small things today.  Tomorrow I may try to work outside in the cold.   Hugs,  mark

  5. I hate monetary greed, there are other things in the world besides money. Seems like the end of our community here on AOL. Jeannette.  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels

  7. I agree totally. I have already moved my journal and I am going to move my book club journal too soon if the ads aren't removed. Most of JLand is very upset about the whole thing. I think it is just crazy.
