    Microsoft Employee Mike Lyman Speaks Out on Online Spam
    Message Board NANAE & Mailing List SPAM-L on Microsoft Spam
    ___________________________________________________________

    MICROSOFT IS ONE OF THE "GREATEST, MOST HATED INSTITUTIONAL SPAMMERS AROUND"

    "I'm with one of the greatest, most hated institutional "spammers" around.
     most people speaking officially for the company will go round and round
     with you how we don't spam. Well, in the past it was not always obvious
     that you were opting in, sometimes it still isn't obvious and our sign up
     process still leaves a lot to be desired and is open to abuse."

    FIRMLY ADMITTING THAT MICROSOFT IS A "SPAMHOUSE" AND SENDS OUT SPAM

    "We are a spamhouse. Doesn't matter that we're Microsoft.  Our legitimate,
     unsolicited email is still just spam."

    I have a question:

    Why is it that all spam messages are badly written? I admit that, to a certain extent, badly written documents can get around spam filters.

    But not as much these days. And even when you see an email that tries to be well-written, it turns out badly.

    Why?

    Haha, does that translate into "Oh my f***ing God what the **** laugh out loud barbeque ? I have seen people use BBQ before on this forum but in Aus BBQ is short for barbeque. Maybe there is another context in which it is used in the non-Aussie parts of the world...

    Oh and we know who started this, it was either a Linux or mac fanatic and we know that Beer likes both. Also, we know how much Beer hates Microsoft for not giving him the address to send his shrink wrapped XP CD to (even though he won't get up off his @$$ and ask a Microsoftian personally, he'd rather complain in a forum where no Microsoftian that can help him will listen...).
    Via this forensic investigation I conclude that Beer28 of Channel9 forums is the person spreading this spam. Thankyou.



    Happy late/early birthday Beer!

    It started off at Something Awful, as satire on those (*cough* LiveJournalers) who say "LOL" and "OMG" excessivly. So they added another well-known TLA: "BBQ"... and it caught on.

    Unfortunatly, more people thesedays actually say "OMFGWTFLOLBBQ" seriously, rather than in jest.
