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 address. So say your address, like mine, is The form field is auto-filled for you with by AOL's asleep at da wheel somewhat incompetent programmers, without even a radio or check box you can click to add an address.

AOL doesn't allow buddy imports

(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, which is, you know, a Yahoo address.)
