Just wait until they get bigger. I guarantee that you'll have
precisely the same problems with AT&T WorldNet, WebTV, and anyone
else who gets really big. It's just the nature of the beast of large
communities -- we don't have any more than our share of clueless
customers (not much, anyway ;-), it's just that because we've got
eight million customers, we've got a lot more total clueless people
than other places.
If you want another comparison, look at crime statistics for
small towns of a few hundred or a few thousand people, and compare
that to the largest cities in the world. They don't really have much
more crimes of most types per capita, but because they have a lot
more people, it seems that way.

If that's what you want. We can make sure that no mail from your
site makes it into AOL, too.
