Microsoft Phishes your accounts.
I was showing my friend how to get a paypal account, and had him sign up,
the whole time warning him about phishing emails.
"Never click the paypal link in an email. Go there on the browser."
He signed up using a hotmail.com address, and the "verify
your account" email came back phished by microsoft passport.
The email had an IP address in the href= for the link.
The IP address resolved back to a passport.microsoft.com address block.
They wanted him to sign in to paypal on their server, steal his login,
and then pass the info along to paypal.
Don't take my word, try it!
They NEED bashing.
There's another article on taxation of virtual goods that caught my eye, this time from cnn.
I have been thinking about this for a while, and I think I finally have a more coherent view of my thoughts on the concept of transaction taxes.
