December 2, 1998: We led with a generic holiday shopping promo, but look at the first text promo: It's for Hometown AOL, AOL's web page creation product, and reads "Spy on Your Neighbors: Visit people's pages in Hometown AOL."
Kind of an odd angle to take a personal web page builder, but whatever, I'm sure I had a reason.
Anyway, hat promo lasted until mid-morning, when (I think) our boss noticed and we changed it to the more benign "Go Visit Your Neighbors."
which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998.
I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them
in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
