AIM Bots

THANK YOU!  I was having the same frustrating problem with the same bot and 
couldn't get rid of it.  However, it's not as easy as just sending them the 
number 5.  I had to go into the privacy policy first where it instructed me 
to type CANCEL -- then I got a menu where the #5 choice was 'unsubscribe to 
all'.    I did that and now it's gone - and hasn't come back.
