I agree with Tyler. Google really needs to explain what is going on here.
1) Why can't AIM sign-in functionality be restored? Is it an AOL contract issue? Or is this purely a Google decision?
Why is it taking so long for AIM to implement federation to domains
other than gmail.com? Is the ball entirely in AOL's court here? Should
we take any federation issues to AOL then, and stop bothering Google
At this point is just really unclear where the blame
is, who we should be angry at, and what exactly it is we are waiting for
