Sorry, I'm not one of these idiots who thinks MS is evil. Try someone else.

MS doesn't need to make money from its users for Hotmail my friend. They
general plenty of money from other sources, and they generate plenty of
dough from the ads on the website and their other web ventures as well.

I didn't say Gmail doesn't get spam chicky-poo. I clearly said that they
deal with it. So do the others. You're so hot to sound bright behind that
keyboard of yours that you're not reading what others are saying. I think I
said that I had no problem paying a small fee, but to charge over the amount
that they want to charge just to a get a credit card seems too expensive.
They're the one that say it's spam. I beg to differ.

I don't have a problem with them making bucks me-buck-oe. My problem is
that they don't have the balls to come out and say that. They use the spam
excuse instead. And my other gripe was that they cut users off without
warning. If they were bright, they would give you some warning, and maybe
even offer you an incentive to join -- a small discount or somthing for the
first year. I don't mind paying. What pissed me off is that they simply
cut users off with no advance email a week or so before to warn you.
And like I said, they sent an email out to me when I complained saying that
they had "made a back-office change" so I could keep my access and that if
they do decide to make a change, they will give me warning before. Sound
like they made a mistake, because most companies would apologize but explain
why again and ask me once again to join.
So calm down sonny. I've got no fixation with Microsoft making money. It's
the way they did this that pisses me off.
Go have a drink or something.
