No, no, AOL can totally be trusted with your e-mail

No, no, AOL can totally be trusted with your e-mail

So, you know how AOL has this new plan to start charging for guaranteed e-mail delivery? Well, it's now apparently blocking users from sending or receiving e-mails that point to an online petition against its plan. MoveOn.org says AOL started blocking e-mails that contain the URL "dearaol.com" sometime on Thursday. News.com said it tried sending a test to an AOL address and did indeed get a bounce, although I just sent the petition link to an AOL pal, and all seems to be well. Seems like AOL went ahead and fixed its "software glitch" when people started to notice the problem. Maybe it plans to use this little incident to further prove why it needs companies to pay extra to get their mail delivered. After all...you just never know!
