Mar 2, 2006 AOL has had its moments over the years, but attempting to level a tax on sending email is just a bit over the top. Fortunately, with the help of MoveOn.org, there's an online petition you can sign to thwart this from starting. The organization has created Our Open Letter to AOL to help prohibit AOL and other ISPs from setting a tax on emails. Let's face it: Would you pay to send an email? Comments 1 Re: Stop AOL from trying to levy taxes on emails Boo to Aol and yahoo, and on the same line is verizon and at&t proposing extra fees to bandwidth hungry sites like google, amazon, etc. for "premium service". Luckily some folks in congress are finally standing up for our rights (http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/02/technology/02online.html), hopefully this will put a stop to telecomms/isp's squeezing every last cent from america.
