Annoyed that AOL added advertising bots to your buddies list?Then try out a different IM service. There are many things about how AIM works internally that are bad for users, but good for AOL. It would be much better to use a different IM client that used protocols that were more standard, and an IM company that wasn't so hard up for cash they'd consider adding advertising bots to your buddies list without your consent in order to try to scare up some advertising dollars.
The better IM service I'm speaking of is Google Talk. The only message AOL will understand about their callous treatment of their users is mass exodus from their service. And Google Talk is better from a technical perspective anyway.
