AOL/AIM: How come I can't register for a account?

Hi all

For the past month or so, I’ve been unable to create a account from their registration page. Every time I fill out the necessary information, the page gives me this error message:

“dial tcp connect: connection refused”

Is anybody else getting this error message, or is it just me? I’d really love to create an account, but I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong. I’ve tried to sign up on two Windows PCs, a Linux PC, and even a Windows XP virtual machine, but I always get this same error message.

i think their aim server is down
