Let's be clear here.  There's the marketing, PR, and billing thieves, 
there's the poor tech support sods who get paid virtually nothing to 
listen to some of the most abusive users I've ever had the misfortune 
to encounter, and then there's the techies who actually try to keep 
all the spit, bailing wire, and chewing gum from going thermonuclear 
on a nightly basis.

I was one of the techies.  We were mostly good guys, who worked for a 
company who had some pretty evil people in other positions.

I also tried to get everyone I knew to switch away from using AOL, 
even during the early years when I didn't think that the company was 
so bad.  I finally got my mom to switch a few years back, and I'm 
still working on trying to get my wife to switch.
