you're missing the point. firstly let's try putting it to you people like
a) not all clients have GUI's
b) not all clients are interactive
c) if you do this on a client, someone will surely make a clone of your client
without the insiduous links and logos. so why do it in the first place?
further, if a user has an AIM username, they obviously have some idea where
the AOL page is. If not and they can't figure out www.aol.com. Then they don't
really need to go.
