Those instant messages you get on AOL *are* for the Web sites which take
advantage of the fact that you may give them a credit card number as age
verification.  Also, consider the relative prominence of those messages
compared to the products AOL sells on their welcome page and also the
product AOL sold you that permits you to be there in the first place.
