During a recent glance through Digg.com I came across an article that read as follows:
Title : Revenge of the AOL cd’s
Description: If your sick of seeing all those aol cd’s at walmart or mc’donalds like I am collect as many as you can and send them in to this address. The goal is 1,000,000 and they will drop them in aol’s parking lot. You’ll be doing a good deed by clearing off the cd’s from the counters so no one else must suffer from aol.
Are these efforts really going to change anything? I’m skeptical of how they plan to gain access to the parking lot. I support getting AOL off the streets but I’m not so sure this take on the situation will be the most effective. Ever since AOL has existed it has been resented by just about every knowledgable computer literate person under the sun. Why doesn’t AOL make all of those free cd’s re-writable or something?
So far the site has been able to collect 371,147 AOL cd’s and they have 628,853 cd’s to go. I have one thing to say and that is, I’m not bailing them out of jail.
Tell me what you think. Visit the site at http://nomoreaolcds.com/ and leave some feedback below.
