 Say what???wondering whether or not this is real or not, I recieved a message that msn are going to start charging for the use of msn and that they may be closing down, because there is not enough names left ont he data base.  what are your thoughts on this here is the web site publishing the story.

Also, have a look at the date of the report, IT IS an old news!!!!


MS announced that ages ago for their MSN 8 portal service (if i remember correctly)...

(Not directing at anyone, but general let-off)

Geez I received that message too, and I wish everyone would have the brain and the time to read the news and actually learn how to find a fact and looking for the date etc. and check further with other sources before forwarding messages like this.

In fact, don't forward any junk like this as it is very likely a fake message anyway, since when did any of the executive managers of any company would release a news or memo like this via email? they would have done it using press conference or proper media release.




Internet is my backyard...

Theres a chain mail based on this and I think it's fun to watch the effect of this little cyber organism on people.

It's only "improved services" like extra hotmail space and features. Phew.. I remember when ads weren't even a part of MSN, Yahoo or ICQ. (and still arent on my screen as I use Miranda alternative all-in-one :-D )
