More on the AIM TOS thing

( Chief architect of AIM agrees the TOS should be reworded to be clear )

It is a bit of relief that some insider at an important position like juberti agrees that the current TOS are vague and inappropriate.  However, the business/legal aspect of AIM is out of his control; even if he agrees the TOS should be changed, they won't be changed if the higher-up executives think otherwise.

Microsoft had a similar incident with its Passport service.  It ended up formally revising and clarifying its TOS.  Let's see if AOL is any better than Microsoft.

Are you still leaving aim?

As long as it has the same TOS, half-yes -- I'll check in if I have to get a hold of people on AIM (like you), but I won't be logged in by default like I used to.

If AOL changes its way and amends the AIM TOS, I will return.
