File this under "adding insult to injury:"  I've complained to AOL about the intrusive advertising they've added to their blogs.  Nothing against ads, but I personally think that placing large banner ads across the top of a paying AOL member's journal with graphics that obscure even the name of the journal, is an insult.  The injury came this morning when I noticed that my own company has placed one of these ads (probably without realizing how it is being positioned on the AOL service).  I'll have a word with our head of advertising about this and share with him the many complaints from AOL members that have been posted online about this particular advertising practice along with the negative media coverage AOL has received on the topic.  Read more here:  AOL Journals: You've Got Ads
