When trying to register for the FileZilla support forum, I get the following message:
"Google Mail is the world's #1 forum spam enabler. Google DOES NOT assure the authenticity of its users! Please use a different mail provider."
Well, Google IS my email provider. I shouldn’t have to get a new one just to get support for your software.
Reluctantly, I decide to use my old hotmail email to register because I have a support question I need to ask. Guess what happens next…
"Hotmail is the world's #2 forum spam enabler. Hotmail DOES NOT assure the authenticity of its users! Please use a different mail provider."
What the trash?
Even though I don’t use Yahoo I decided to try a Yahoo address anyway, and this is what I got:
"Yahoo is the world's #2 forum spam enabler. Yahoo DOES NOT assure the authenticity of its users! Please use a different mail provider."
So I guess Hotmail and Yahoo are tied for 2nd place…?
This is ridiculous. What kind of support forum denies registration from three of the world’s largest and most used email providers? A support forum made of fail, that’s what kind.
I guarantee you there are better ways to deal with spam than to ostracize hundreds of potential legitimate support-seekers.
I’m really not sure what the subject of this blog post is supposed to imply. It’s really random.
I unhid most of my facebook friends a few minutes ago. Yes, I know ‘unhid’ isn’t a real world word. Anyway, I consider my Facebook homepage / news feed to be MY little section of the internet and every once in a while a friend will begin to post things that really bother me in one way or another. It could be profanity, or it could simply be something I don’t agree with and certainly don’t want to argue about. Seeing these things really stresses me out, believe it or not. Well, they’re not going to stop just because of me, but they’re still people that have some importance to me so I don’t want to block or delete them. In such cases, I simply hide their posts from ever appearing in my news feed. In fact, if you’ve not gotten any comments from me on anything you’ve posted for a while, then you’ve probably been hidden. I generally comment on a lot of things. It’s what I do.
I’ve realized that only a few good people are compatible with my neurotic personality. It’s probably why I have so few facebook friends.
Ah, I just got an email…
…meh, it was just junk.
I really don’t know what else to say right now. Thanks for reading. Bye.
