I have gotten the sense that contacting David O'Donnel is about the only
way to get AOL to respond to valid complaints from internet users.  I have
had several experiences where mail to abuse@aol.net gets nothing more than
an automated reply, but contacting O'Donnel (or other emergency abuse
staff) gets quick and appropriate results.  I have chronicled one such
episode on the web at http://www.keck.ucsf.edu/~dblake/toddo/aol-ban.htm.
The story includes a phone number to reach O'Donnel and crew, which may
come in handy for other list-managers.
