AOL Refuses to Deliver 060723 MMDigest
By Jan Kijlstra

AOL seems to act as a censor.  It's sad to read that in the USA,
hosting the Liberty statue, this is possible.

If there is doubt about no matter which publication censoring it is
the wrong way.  Let it be published, and go to court to check if you
have doubts about the publication.  Never it should be allowed that
publishing is made impossible just because one, like AOL, has the
power to do so.

By the way, doing so is the best way to spread rapidly the censored
stuff.  AOL is not powerful enough to block the Internet, and there
are lot of ways to distribute a message without the help of AOL, but
censoring does make many people curious, and they will look what's all
about.  Therefore censoring the way AOL does is the best way to spread
the censored message wider and wider.  Regarding this, one could say
it's not quite intelligent what they did.  But who expects intellect
in people who seem to think that censoring on the Internet is a proper

Isn't the book "Internet for Dummies" a nice Christmas gift for some
AOL-people?  But maybe they would not read it, because they are afraid
that they might not like it.  If they want to close their eyes, it's
fine.  But who needs them to be blindfolded?

There is only one good answer to answer AOL.  If you use them, then
cancel your subscription, and switch to another provider.
