To top it off, my email address was then maliciously used to sign me up to all the email spam sites that could be imagined. I had never received much spam before but after this, up to 40 per hour were arriving, many of them from the most dreadful pornographic sites, all this and more after receiving the wrath of the ban-ders. And how can i prove that ba-nders were the original source of the spam? Common sense really. The correlation between male bird band-ers and the need for Via-gra is well known!. (LOL)

While I normally don't feed trolls, this is an outrageous allegation.

Hotmail is infamous for, if not synonymous with, spam - this is normal
for Hotmail and has *nothing* to do with banders.  I have a Hotmail
account that I do not use for email (you need one to use Microsoft
Messenger), yet it gets dozens of spam messages because the email
address has been leaked by Microsoft, extracted from the Messenger
profiles and/or generated from dictionary words.
