AOL Denies 'Three Strikes And Out' Policy For XP Users

Saw this one doing the rounds, so I thought, why not post! thanks WinOSCentral for the heads up.

America Online yesterday denied that it is forcing members with Microsoft's Windows XP operating system to upgrade to the latest version of AOL's software.

Message boards at the online service contain numerous postings from AOL members about what they've termed AOL's "three strikes and you're blocked" policy for XP users who sign on with older versions of AOL 6.0.

Under that policy, subscribers using AOL 6.0 with Microsoft's new operating system are greeted with a pop-up warning that AOL 6.0 is not compatible with Windows XP and that they must upgrade to AOL version 7.

XP users are able to sign on three times using the old AOL 6.0 software before the online service blocks them from connecting, according to message board postings.
