Digital black out
Hotmail has blocked me out.
My hotmail account, which I’ve always been reluctant to give out when someone asks for it outside of school, has been blocked by hotmail. Why? Seems my account is the source of spam all over the world!
Things I miss:
WordPress.com account – so if they send a mail “respond to this or we will shut down your blog”, I wouldn’t know
Worldoftanks.com account – all other sorts of “important” game accounts
Gmail.com accounts alternate
Hotmail.com accounts alternate
Flipkart.com account – and I lose 500rs because of this, couldn’t get refund of last undelivered purchase!
Subscriptions to Haris’s and Sharat’s blogs – now I never know when they do post something
Mails from my first crush – not really upset about it come to think of it…hmm
My old online banking account – I had to fix it
Rechargeitnow.com account – can’t avail a refund if they screw up
Abacus mailing list
What do I learn from this? My individuality if linked to a dang mail account!
When I did try to get it fixed, they needed me to verify if it really was me. I’m sure you all would’ve heard the Chaplin story… if you haven’t, it went thusly (never used that word, felt cool: P) Chaplin came 3rd in a competition for Chaplin look alike. So, Hotmail says I’m not me or at least

Why not fix each of those? Cant be bothered to do all of that.. Make a new with new Hotmail.com accounts!
I will never learn..
