    I have a Hotmail account that I've had for over nine years. I only use
    it to test email templates. It's *never* gotten spam. So, I sign up to
    download Win7 RC and I have to sign up with my Hotmail account. I am
    asked if I want to have Microsoft information and other information sent
    to me and I untick both. Lo and behold, now my Hotmail account is
    getting spam for penis enlargement, viagra, the Nigerian scam and all
    the rest. In short, Microsoft sold my email address to the spammers.

    No shit but Microsoft sold my email to them.
    You weren't expected to understand or believe me and you met all
    expectations in spades.

    No one else to blame, sorry. I only gave it to Microsoft and the spam
    started the same day. We know that when Microsoft says bend over, you
    answer, "how far".
    Now there's a cogent argument, NOT!

    Gosh, you lie for Microsoft. How much do they pay you?
    More lies. How much does MS pay you to lie?
    I use XP all the time for video games (it being a toy operating system
    and all) and Ubuntu for real work.

    If receiving spam is your idea of being hacked, your knowledge of
    computers is quite limited. A lot of the spam comes from Microsoft
    itself. Are you saying that Microsoft is hacking Hotmail accounts, hot shot?

    Lying again, eh? Has a day ever passed that you haven't told a lie?

    None of your business but, like I've told you many times, I do all my
    work in the AM when you don't see me posting here at all. Oh, and you
    and Frank have the crap monopoly here, not me.

    All lies. I have installed Ubuntu for ONE little old lady who has been
    happily running it for almost two years now. Are you saying you would
    install Windows and all the programs and devices for a client for free?

    And they do it for free?

    To make more money, of course. I also provide jobs for unemployed techs
    who want to get paid for the work that they do. I don't do it much
    myself. Now, it it's a friend or family, yes, I do it for free.
