A Stupid Business: Why Not To Invest In Microsoft
So, I’m trying to log into msn messenger two days ago, aka the dumbly named “Windows Live”, and when I realize I’m not sure about the password, I try to go look for some software to unveil the hidden password, and when I move my mouse I accidentally select “forget me” or whatever it says while logged out, do I get a “are you sure?” No, instead it wipes the email and password instantly. Awesome, not. So then I go to my online email account using IE, and unlike the usual for hotmail, I’m still logged in. YET, when I go to change my password since none of them were working to get into msn messenger, and instead of going through some simple no brainer steps, I get instead some other page that says, “since dis is sensitive info u must do such and such” as in PUT IN YOUR PASSWORD TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD. DUMB. So then of course I try their steps to fill out the info I put in when signing up. But since I don’t use live email much, because gmail is superior, and because I don’t use msn messenger and I barely use it cuz they won’t get rid of that dumb big fat obese advertising/home page thing on it, I can’t remember the details either. It did however ask who the last person I sent an email out to was, so I put that in. But what happens two days later, do I get a, “Oh, so this is your email account, and this is a recently sent out email, and you did give the correct birthday, so here’s a password reset link.” No, instead:
We recently received a request to recover your account Microsoft account email@example.com. Unfortunately, we were unable to verify your ownership of this account using the information you provided. Microsoft takes the security and privacy of our customers very seriously, and our commitment to protecting your personal information requires that we take the utmost care in ensuring that you are the account owner.
Please submit a new account verification form
At this point, your best option is to submit a new form with as much accurate information as you can gather. The more information you can include in the form, the better the chance you’ll have of regaining access to your account. We’ve included a few tips below to help you fill out the form as completely and accurately as possible.
Helpful tips for filling out another form:
- Answer as many questions as you can.
- Use the information you provided when you created the account, or last updated it.
- Submit the form from a computer you frequently use.
- You will be asked to list recently used email addresses and the subject lines from recent emails. Ask for help from family members, friends, or business contacts to confirm their email addresses and tell you the subject lines of the last three emails they sent you.
- Make sure to use the correct domain for your account, such as hotmail.com, live.com, or xbox360.com. Keep in mind that your email address may be country specific. For example, if you created your account in Sweden, your domain would be “hotmail.co.se” rather than “hotmail.com”.

Here’s my idea: If I’m logged in, and can change things like my profile, how about let me be able to contact a customer service person, just as easily as Amazon.com allows it, and show I’m logged in and would like my password changed? Why are these rich moron CEOs so utterly dumb and out of touch? Or is it they want money? Because I noticed at the bottom of the recovery form was something about entering your billing information. Rich people are shit aren’t they? I hope if Obama is reelected that he taxes them to death. I definitely won’t be giving Microsoft my money for their email service with massive stupidity like that. How can it help their business to make life oppressive for their users? And what’s with Yahoo email? Why do they make it impossible to connect it to an email client like Thunderbird, unless I guess, you pay them. I’ll still with Gmail, which doesn’t give me as hard a time as those two dumb companies.
