What Is Wrong with Hotmail?

Report as

Microsoft Outlook is trying to bully all Hotmail users to cross over to Outlook!! What better way to do it than to create problems with Hotmail?!?!? This is what you call a hostile takeover. This is happening to all people who have Hot mail for not having gone over to Outlook. What Microsoft doesn't understand is that WE ARE ALL HAPPY WITH HOTMAIL!!!! I've been with Hotmail for for 14 years now and I don't want to change. Microsoft realizes this and they are creating network problems so we change over. THESE ARE NETWORK PROBLEMS ARE THAT EASILY CREATED BY SERVER ENGINEERS!! HOW DO I KNOW? BECAUSE TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEMS OVER A WIDE AREA AND THE PROBLEMS HAVEN'T STOPPED, MICROSOFT HASN'T EXPLAINED THE PROBLEMS, AND THE PROBLEMS COINCIDE WITH THEIR PUSH FOR OUTLOOK!!! JUST THE OTHER DAY, I GOT A MESSAGE FROM THE MICROSOFT NAZI'S AT OUTLOOK SAYING THAT THEY "WOULD BE SWITCHING MY HOTMAIL ACCOUNT OVER FOR ME! WTF IS THIS ABOUT? WELL!!! I FOR ONE WILL GO IMMEDIATELY TO GOOGLE!! IF YOU DO THIS THEY WILL HIJACK ALL YOUR FOLDERS!! HOTMAIL USERS BEWARE!! MICROSOFT THINKS WE'LL JUST LIE DOWN AND ALLOW THEM TO MOW OVER US LIKE BLADES OF GRASS!! NOT I MY FRIENDS!!

Thanks,Rob. Because of a recent viral link spam, I was urged to change passwords to my favorite "dinosaur" hotmail. After spending countless hours getting emails to my recovery addys, and going back and forth, and back and forth, I feel very qualified to volley in some mental sport for the next Olympics. Do you think it is worth some media attention? I'm pretty upset because now the security info that is gathered is asking for a phone number and I'm not sure it is a good idea.//// I am reporting this to our local TV station and posting it on Facebook and Twitter. Want to help?

January 8, 2013 Hotmail has been down, at least for my account, since last night. It has intermittently popped on, but only for a few seconds, so it is effectively not functioning. When I attempt to sign in, I get the message that Hotmail is having problems. Is anyone else having this issue?
