The AOL welcome screen invited me to try Bingo on AOL Games. So I did..
The screen showed a Bingo card and the computer began announcing the calls out loud. "B-11, N-38..." it called, and on and on. I attempted to mark my Bingo card and play the game, no luck. Couldn't mark the card.
"Never mind,:" thought I, and clicked the X in the upper right corner.
"G-51, O-70,: droned the computer, ignoring my attempt to turn it off. Left click,right click. On it went. The program wouldn't stop, so I tried to shut down AOL...left click and right click on the uppermost X.
"I-20, B-7," went the computer.
I had to shut the computer off to get it to stop. I was afraid that when I turned it on this morning that it would begin calling Bingo numbers at me. Whew, it did not. I won't try that program again.
AOL may be trying the trick some Porno channels use...disabling the "stop" command. Some porno channels get you into their sites and do not let you go. In their case, I used to blame myself. "Well, that's what you get for choosing sleazy sites," I would tell myself. "What did you expect?"
But it is not what I expected from AOL.
