How do you get around them? Why are they there? You go into a chat on AIM, and you are banned for no apparent reason, can anyone do it?

On the assumption that you are not typing anything rude or naughtly, you are probably being kicked out by a program that searches for certain words in messages and if it finds them, takes action; these programs are not smart enough to take certain words in context and make sense of them. If, for example, it is told to search messages for "bomb" and you type in something about using a aerosol bomb to get rid of cockroaches, it will think you are a terrorist and take action.

If you are still on AOl, then you've more problems than getting kicked off of AIm.

Both are the largest purveyors of virus, malware and etc of any provider on the WWW.

I no longer accept any messages from anyone on AOL or even Yahoo.

And you can take that to the bank....

I would avoid such chat rooms (run by the big three) on general principle, or use chat rooms like the one on BC. Public places like those run by AIM are so full of malicious people and script kiddies, spammers, and worse that these rooms can cause a lot of harm to your computer.

Ive been to yahoo chat and you dont want to go there neither. Bunch of trolls on crack after they sucked the helium out of 10 balloons lol! There is no control in yahoo chat. If you must go there then you'd be safe. But still dont promote anything bad.
