AOL Is Splitting From The Internet-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:  This email says that effective April 15, AOL is separating itself from the Internet and will operate on its own.  People will not be able to send and receive email between AOL and the rest of the Internet and, according to the email, AOL regards itself as the original Internet and wants everybody to sign up.

The Truth:

  This is a hoax.  It was launched on the Internet on April Fool’s day, 2001.
