Saying goodbye to an old friend stings. On the morning of Dec. Take a moment to allow the year-old inside of you let out a deep sob; think about the bulletin you wish you could post to your MySpace about how unfair it is that the messaging platform of your youth is no more. Don't hold back. Because you're an adult now, the world is cruel, and wait — I have to ask — who was still on AIM, anyway?

One was reminded that, once again, AOL's performance issues are completely out of the subscribers' hands.
This marks the culmination of an ongoing streak in which at least 34 different AOL content areas have been affected since April of The hackers -- and even some subscribers -- are publicly opining that AOL is powerless to prevent the assaults. Perhaps AOL feels that keeping coverage out of the mainstream media is enough
