This problem, which allegedly can happen to any AIM user, was first made public by Inside-AOL.com months ago, but AOL decided not to respond until this Thursday under increased pressure from Inside-AOL.com and other media." This is just the kind of news I could do without, having recently been persuaded to register with AIM and give GAIM a try.
