Ya gotta love MSN Messenger.

Now is it just me or has messenger fucked up royally again? I can't access any of my accounts and everything else is working fine so I know its not my net connection or anything.

Why is messenger so damn unreliable? What makes AIM or ICQ work all the time without breaking down?

Bah, the more advanced our technology is getting, the more there is that can go wrong with it <IMG SRC="mad.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Maybe it's because you have over 2MB in your e-mail folders.
    Their newest scam is, if you have to many e-mails in your account, they freeze it. I got an e-mail about it the other day.

    Its all a money making scam cos (in cheesy msn salesman voice) wow! if u pay $19.99 a year you can have 10MB of storage...thats 5 times more than normal MSN accounts!

    MSN really is a pile of crap. <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Excite.com do free mail
    I have had an account with them for 6 years and haven't recieved one junk mail message. Now who can say that for F***in Hotmail? My mates recieve loads of junk crap every day in their mailboxes.

    I've told everyone who emails me to send it to a different, non hotmail, account. So why do I still get 12 emails a day on my hotmail account??

    MSN is always packing up for me. Oh, and a ton of spam.
    AIM is ok, if you can handle the invitable disasterous effects on your spelling and grammar.

    So just ditch it, you don't need an msn account to use msn messenger. Just sign up for a passport, no need to fill in half the details.

    The other day it took me over an hour to log onto messenger because the service was too busy. When I eventually go online there was one of my tweny contacts online, and she has over fifty people on her list, all different from mine, and she said I was the only one online, so the rest of the bloody world was online, but no-one we knew,. Typical.

    I also love the 'you cannot access your account...this isn't your fault please try again later..blah blha blah'!

    Ahhh, its crap!

    If you don't like messenger, then use Trillian, its much better and you can be connected to Yahoo, MSN, AOL, ICQ all at the same time from the same piece of software.

    I've been using it for months now. d/load it for free http://www.trillian.cc/

    Msn is evil!

    I can talk to anyone on it, just fine..but if I talk to the missus(or whatver she is right now) we end up arguing just because you cant tell tones of voice and body language etc.

    Sucks! Maybe it's just her that's evil..lol <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
