As mentioned at Slashdot, AOL has changed the terms of service for their AIM service. Effectively, they can do whatever they want with their traffic. No privacy whatsoever! Although I never used AIM itself, I connected to the ICQ network via an AIM gateway on my Jabber server. I have condoned the ICQ contacts on my roster for way too long now, and this was the last straw. I removed all my ICQ contacts and unregistered with the gateway. Bye, bye now!
