  I can't help but respond to this ridiculous suggestion.

  Please look up the definition of Antitrust before you go
  rumor-mongering without facts.

  The principle of antitrust is controlling a large enough segment
  of the market to minimize competition.  Approaching a monopoly.

  AOL+Compuserve will continue to use multiple vendors for their
  customers' access.  Microsoft is free to choose anyone they want.

  An allegation that this action is anticompetitive is simply not
  well thought out.
