The deathwatch for AOL officially begins today

Remember when America Online was the most popular internet service provider on the planet? Remember when they made billions of dollars exploiting their customers' ignorance concerning other web-access alternatives? Remember when they choked up the US postal system with millions upon millions of free CD-ROMs, paid for by the escalating fees forced upon those poor, dumb, son-of-a-b***h customers? Remember when they refused to comply to any standards the W3C proposed, because they were AOL and they didn't have to do anything anyone else said?

Yeah, neither do I.
