Wtf Is Going On?

Recommended Posts

Any computer experts out there? I need help!

It all started about a month ago. Tried to send a few pictures via e-mail...no joy. Got an Error Code 0x8CCCDQ3F

Tried again, no joy. Went to Windows Live SkyDrive and e-mailed them to find an answer.

Then got a very strange reply. They accused me of sending out inappropriate material and they had suspended my account. Their letter contained warnings about sending pictures of children and babies...

I nearly hit the bloody roof! How dare these remote idiots connect me with this type of material. Bloody outrageous!

Further on in their reply they identified a file I had sent out. This was an adult joke called "World's Happiest Couple"

Quite simply it was a nude picture of a man and woman that had obviously been photoshopped. The sort of joke I guarantee everyone on HPC has viewed or sent on.

It was not pornograhic, violent, underage, racist etc...just an adult joke. Anyway I deleted it and I was then able to attach pictures...for a week.

Down it went again and they have finally replied that I have violated their code of conduct and they have suspended my account yet again.

However, even now, I can still send and receive e-mails with attachments but not pictures...Weird or what?

I fired off another mail to tell the to reinstate my account and stop sending me these ridiculous warning letters.

So my questions are...This SkyDrive nonsense comes with Windows 7. Can I get away from them completely as an e-mail provider? Do they have the right to view my e-mails and their content?...surely illegal

Am I replying to a computer or an actual person?

This is getting very surreal in fact. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I think this bit covers their CoC

Whats interesting though is that out of the many users, yours got flagged up. This suggests to me they are now scanning emails and photos which possibly invades one's privacy to a point.

Big Brother is watching a bit like the Facebook face recognition?

Oh yes indeed he is. Why would you want to store anyting on the cloud beats me.

I got stuck in an airport lounge overnight with a group of people, one of whom was some sort of antiterrorism expert working for the AFP. Anyhow, apropos of nothing, as everyone parted, he said "just be very, very careful about what you all do on the internet." Now, not an unusual thing for such a person to say...but what chilled me was the way that he said it. There was real concern in his voice. Makes one wonder what is being done in secret.
