It’s evident that AOL was uncomfortable with my decision to publicize the sn’s responsible for those annoying ads that are plaguing J-land, because I discovered this morning that the entry of October 1st had been deleted from our journal and archives. This doesn’t bother me unduly, because those sn’s are enshrined in my Word program.
In addition to the by now well-known sn’s, I have discovered five more in one of AOL’s own journals, their Daily Pulse Blog. It appears that the editor of that blog has made a lackadaisical and sloppy attempt to expunge some but by no means all of the ads, although they are certainly diligent in deleting one entry of ours.
The fact that (at least) ten sn’s exist suggests that the person or people responsible for disseminating these ads own at least two accounts.
We hope that AOL will in future be more diligent about policing their account holders.
