I am Furious with aol!!!

Aol have now plummeted the depths and I am furious with their latest tactic which in fact is their very own form of spam.

I'm sure that many others have by now recived an email inviting them to join the site of a friend.  When you click on the link and accept the invitation - putting in your own details, it automatically generates an email invitation to everyone on your address list to join 'your' site.

The crafty thing is, that it's not until you have clicked the ok button, that further down the page - it reveals everyone on your address list,  only then do you have the opportunity of taking off anyone on that list that you do not want to send the email to, but there is no indication before hand, that any emails are going to be sent out, and by then, it's too late.  So apologies to anyone who has received such an email from me - please ignore it - and any others that you receive or at least be warned of what is going to happen.

I am in an acutely embarassing position because this invite will have been sent to business addresses on my list.

I do hope someone at aol is reading this and takes note, and stops this nasty way of gathering email addresses.

a very angry and very red faced Freda!
