MICROSOFT IS ONE OF THE "GREATEST, MOST HATED INSTITUTIONAL SPAMMERS AROUND"
"I'm with one of the greatest, most hated institutional "spammers" around.
most people speaking officially for the company will go round and round with you how we don't spam. Well, in the past it was not always obvious that you were opting in, sometimes it still isn't obvious and our sign up process still leaves a lot to be desired and is open to abuse."
FIRMLY ADMITTING THAT MICROSOFT IS A "SPAMHOUSE" AND SENDS OUT SPAM
"We are a spamhouse. Doesn't matter that we're Microsoft. Our legitimate, unsolicited email is still just spam."

The spamis.org domain is suspended apparently.
