AOL blocked Australia's biggest server at one stage for 2-3 weeks . This has
been going on for years with AOL providing this third rate service and I
still wonder how they get away with it. Surely they have a "service
agreement" that will prevent this.

I guess the only way they will ever update their service is if the consumers
says NO MORE and change servers. Maybe then they will update to a more
competent service.
