They haven't really made any money from subscribers since like 97? I do not do a lot of research into the companies financials but noticed that two of the people I used to work with (marketing) who where in the targeted advertising business pushed for everyone they knew to communicate exclusively on AIM. I can't say that the three of us were well um saints, one of my partners was known to wear a lot of black as was thought to be dead by even his parents... refused to own a phone or sign contracts... had a nice house and paid well though. Also satisfied his legitimate clients with the click-through rates they were demanding... so I just have to wonder why he was so insistent on everything AOL... I didn't want to look a gift horse in the mouth and it wasn't like he was executing remote exploits in the known vulnerabilities (he worked in advertising not bnet herding or fraud or w/e). I dk just a question I wanted to get some feedback on. Thanks.
