GeneralMicrosoft and Facebook Can Go To Hell PinmemberMehGerbil18-Jul-14 4:20 
Microsoft's Hotmail is making me very angry.
 
They've got some new security push and the product is now insisting on some elephanting security code that has to be delivered to me by phone or text or as a tattoo on the back of an Asian princess - I don't know, and I don't care. I've been using the product for 5 years without all this additional security bullsh*t. I don't want to put in all these additional numbers but the nagging continues. I keep trying to hammer my way through it but they won't leave me the elephant alone and now I'm to expect an email in 30 days for reasons that are unclear to me - I may just close the account and find a different service. Leave me ALONE.
 
I open an account and provide a password.
IT ENDS THERE BITCHES!!!!
 
Facebook keeps nagging for additional information on me as well. I'm one "Do You Know These Elephants?" nag screen away from closing that account as well. If I want someone as a friend I'll very well go out and find that person - the nagware is driving me crazy here. They also want additional security information - blow me, ya little sh*ts, just blow me already. I want the most basic service possible without having to buy into a lifestyle of photos, tweets, messages, reminders, must-see TV, friends lists, ignore lists, prescription drugs, and nights in a darkened cellar being ritually paddled by drunk frat boys drinking booze out of enema bags.
 
I want email - not a suite of life encompassing solutions that intrude on the simple task of getting my mail.
