I see Microsoft has thrown in the towel

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Red Swingline Stapler, Mar 19, 2009.

  1. They obviously don't give a rat's a-hole about the newsgroups any longer.
    They are effectively killing them by allowing droves of spammers free reign
    on them. It's a shame really, I found them quite useful for several years.
    Now I come in and see that at least 75% of the posts are for hot puzsie,
    brain dumps, and ipod movie makers.

    I guess everything has it's own lifespan, and Microsoft is doing what it
    can to shorten this one

  6. Viagra?! No. THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAA!

    I have contacted Microsoft on the issue and hopefully I'll hear back soon.
    It has been a HUGE problem lately, and is making it less enticing to come
    here for any kind of help or recommendations anymore. And it really gives
    the new certification people a bad impression.

    .... and there should be age restrictions, so that teenagers like yourself
    can't post here.

    Great come-back. Let me equal it.
    They should also ban top-poster morons like you.
    Yeah that did it.

    Now get yourself back to your boyfriends c*ck please.
    Wow I even bettered it.

    So your problem is with those that may make this NG enjoyable to read, rather
    than with the spammers that clog it up like my toilet after a super bowl
    party?

    You must be having a great time reading all of your p3nis pill emails as
    well.
