I'm glad that this story was filed under entertainment... what a joke!

http://www.aolsucks.org/ - says it all
I still can't believe (well, I can) that they managed to convince so many muppets for so long that the normal internet was in fact AOL content!
AOL CDs were only good for drinks mats - I had quite a collection (turned upside-down) on my coffee table for many years.
AOL's demise can't come soon enough!
I have a home phone and only use it for broadband (Plusnet) and the odd 0870 / 0845 call that isn't included in my mobile minutes. Fortunately I live close to my exchange and enjoy a 17Mb connection.
Every 6 months they call me up and tell me that they'd like me to come back to BT. Each time, I have to explain to them that I only really use my home phone for broadband, that I'm not using another provider, and that if they offered a broadband-only line rental tariff then they'd know this!
Bring on a broadband-only (possibly with IP-phone service) where the line rental is half that of the current line rental (or less).
