It's AIM, after all. No, seriously, what's stupid about it is it won't let you import buddies from Yahoo if you use anything besides an @yahoo.com address. So say your address, like mine, is kissmyassAIM@rocketmail.com. The form field is auto-filled for you with @yahoo.com by AOL's
asleep at da wheel somewhat incompetent programmers, without even a radio or check box you can click to add an @rocketmail.com address.
(But this is from the same people who took two years to add Washington DC, a district in the United States, to an online cancel form, since their programmers apparently thought listing Washington State, which is a state, not a district, fixed it from all angles. So I have no faith whatsoever the Find Buddies form in AIM will ever include the ability to import buddies from @rocketmail.com, which is, you know, a Yahoo address.)
