    They've dropped "AOL" from their name.

    Now if that doesn't solve all the problems of the company formed by, as the once put it, the largest ever use of "fake internet money," I don't know what will.

    Combined with the recent sale of the Atlanta Hawks, this should solve every single one of their problems.

    The name AOL sounds silly. When you look at it would let your drift your thought to the image of 'A hOle in 1' or something like that.

    The look and sound of a name is very important. For example, 'Lucent' technology is not a good name. It sounds like 'Loser' technology...time for them to change the name too.

    If I had tons of fake internet money, I would buy a real company as well. The real losers are the energy companies that had real money and spent it on fake internet companies (which is why Enron, Duke and others are in bad shape now after raping California).

    Actually, given the market performance since the merger, a saying springs to mind. You can spell A-S-S-H-O-L-E without A-O-L.

    or ticker : BJS "BJ Services"

    or CUM "cummins"

    or my personal favorite: RICK "Ricks Cabaret International": "get a piece of the action"

    I don't know where you learned to spell, but I find that I always need the A, the O, and the L when spelling A-S-S-H-O-L-E.

    Absolutely. What boggles the mind is how so many fake internet companies used their monopoly money to buy other fake internet companies.

    Well, they did sell the Thrashers prematurely. Heatley and Kovalchuk are going to wreak havoc in the next few years as long as the lockout ain't too long. HOLD! :D
