Please update your profile ASAP with an e-mail address on a non-Russian domain name so we can block all .ru mail addresses from registering (most spam user registrations).

Technicially, isn't this racial profiling? <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> j/k

No, because everybody in Russia can get a .com or other e-mail address for free. Also, this is just a small gaming forum where it's not very important whether someone can easily post or not (and everybody can read it w/o probs). I did block whole domains in the past from registering, maybe it's time for the next step. <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

A good choice, by far superior to Hotmail or AOL (which I admit I used a few years ago... <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: --> ).

Heh, know how I chose it? I scrolled up the topic checking everyone... first was RambOrc, he got a mailbox on korax-heritage.com, which I possibly can not use, then was Firebrand who's got a mailbox on yahoo, so I chose Yahoo. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> I remember 1 more with russian mail - Malcolm.

LOL you can have a korax-heritage.com mail addy if you want, but let me warn you that the domain is so spam-ridden, we've all dropped our accounts there years ago. A pity, that. Still, if you don't mind spam you can have a korax-heritage.com mail addy, no prob. p.s. Alex has a .ru address too.

Switched to Yahoo after I got fed up with the shit back around 2004. And I was 15 then by the way, so for an innocent youth of that tender age to distinguish good software from bad is pretty impressive. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> Especially since everyone that age is addicted to MSN, Hotmail, and Myspace. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: -->

Of which Myspace is the only excusable one. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Microsoft isn't the only company that makes terrible software you know. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> I never liked Myspace anyway: complete lack of diversity in the web pages, and I remember reading somewhere that there are no anti-overbufferers (don't know the actual term) in its scripting language, so novice clients can easily cram gigs after gigs into the page and cause every browser to crash.

I PM-ed Alex and Malcolm about email.

Yes, hotmail is a sucker, my brother uses it as his normal mail adress because he's addicted to MSN, since it works with my yahoo mail address, I don't have the need to use it (fortunately) <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->.

[quote="The 4th Class":1vaw5he1]everyone that age is addicted to MSN, Hotmail, and Myspace. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> I myself am practically forced to use M$N because all my friends, "friends", schoolmates, etc, etc, have an M$N account. It may be the age, because most of my friends, etc, and me, round the age 13. Anyway, I had to almost flee from M$ .net messenger, because of how it sucks. It rounded 60-80 CPU usage, compared to the program I have now, miranda IM, that never used any more than 5. M$N messenger is also a scheme for you to buy from microsoft in a way, because all the new versions of it, 7.5 and higher, require windows XP. Of course messenger 7.5 offers the newest halfway useful feature that is opening two accounts at the same time. Also, hotmail technical support has the same IQ than a bot, I once sent a mail warning that their e-mails allowed HTML without an option to disable it, and they ended up telling me to switch to IE. Truly dissapointing, thinking that it came from an actual person. But don't start cheering about yahoo! either. Some time ago I created an account, and as soon as I entered, it failed to open. So, I sent, from a hotmail account, a mail to yahoo! technical support reporting them about the problem. The next day, I successfully entered the yahoo! account, and found an e-mail from yahoo! technical support, with instructions on how to make my account (the account that didn't work, which they smartly sent the e-mail to) work. It's like having someone to call you because your phone doesn't work. Dissapointing too.

At least Yahoo is more secure, if I'm not mistaken. As for your troubles, sure they were a bit daft sending mail to an inactive account, but chances are it was probably just theserver was down. M$N literally targets 11-14 year olds who don't know anything about computers so they're more likely to download whatever M$ wants them to.

M$ was always good at marketing, hence their high market share.
