You're reading a magazine. You come across a full-page nude photo of a girl.

You're in luck, Mr. Deckard, or maybe not so much.  I *am* a lesbian.

Yesterday and today we had a few people try to register using Hotmail so we wanted to mention once again it is not allowed do to Spambot problems. If you want to join this site please use another e-mail service (we recommend G-mail).

Thank You

We may have to update the TOS so it is very clear.

FYI

To combat spambots we still don't allow Hotmail e-mail accounts on Amiga.org. If you tried to register with Hotmail and it failed please reregister with G-mail or something else. I saw a few failed registrations for Hotmail so I thought it might be good to bring this up again. Hotmail is obsolete and it's silly that anyone still uses it in the 21st century.

Hotmail? Thought Microsoft were stopping that service and replacing it with outlook web mail or something.

Last time I used Hotmail was over 10 years ago :-)

I was under the impression that they were just dropping the Hotmail name and rolling everything into the live system.

@Lurch

You can still create new Hotmail e-mail accounts and spammers do it all the time.

Wow, did not know that. Kind of crazy to keep it running.

No problems with Yahoo? At work we've been blocking them for a year now. Hotmail, MSN, Live, ... have just joined them recently... ;)

Yahoo has not given us problems so far (cross fingers).

In what possible way is it obsolete?

It's silly that people think the way you do.
