Being in another country, I tried to reach my two email accounts held with #Microsoft (#hotmail and #outlook).
They have #blocked me out and they demanded for a code which I had set to receive to the other one of each two blocked accounts. A complete dead-end.
I have been obliged to acknowledge to them my mail address with #yahoo and after eleven (11) interrogations, #personal data, telephone Nr – which I have refused repeatedly to provide to them -, names and email of my contacts, which I didn’t remember anyway, I could only answer the security question which I had set at the opening of the damned account.
The result is that they instruct me to open a new account!!!!
Does anyone know if there is any organization which controls these unethical practices?
I will denounce them with all my means!!
THIS IS a violation of #civil_rights and the real #terrorism by #Microsoft!
Its history and its unethical practices in various levels is the proof and their monopoly is blackmailing.
That’s their message after my numerous attempts and their dictatorial rejections:

Together with welcoming you readers and, hopefully, permanent (free) subscribers of this effort-blog, I esteem that the first approach-article, should better be an overview rather than a specific event.
In this historical, in multiple levels and countries, period of the world, “things happen” with such a speed that makes it difficult for the people to follow and perceive the whole picture. Each region and each country confronts their current issues in politics or economy and, in disproportionate analogy, life and death, peace and war, living or surviving.
On another level, the “global routine” of politics and diplomacy goes on by handling, managing, manipulating or planning the next day or days.
In this frame, a number of war fronts remain open or are being created under the need (or the pretext) to stop other wars, restrain the spread of “universal enemies”, namely extremists, killers, haters but nevertheless, ex-allies and “by-products” of older political expediencies.
In a book I read a long time ago, Still Life with Woodpecker (1980), Tom Robins recounts (my translation from the Greek edition): “Once upon a time, Hawaii had problem with rats. Then, someone came up with a brilliant idea; Import mongooses from India. Mongooses would kill rats. It worked. Mongooses killed indeed rats. Mongooses killed chicken, piggies, birds, cats, dogs and toddlers. There were witnesses about mongooses which attacked motorbikes, electric lawn machines, cars of golf and others. Hawaii now has more mongooses than the rats it had in the past. Hawaii exchanged its problem of rats with a problem of mongooses. But Hawaii was determined not to allow something like this happen again”.
Sadly as much as alarmingly, USA (mainly and more than any country or coalition) does not seem to share the knowledge of Hawaiian lesson. American politics, policies, and as a consequence, their strategic alliances, insist in attempting to extinct rats with mongooses. In the present, alike with the near or distant past, they “plant” exterminators, oppositions and enemies of their enemies. As a result, the “crop” are threats and fear, fundamentalism and terrorism. Iraq, Libya, Nigeria and Ukraine (for example) share this same denominator. Friends, shadowy friends, pawns and tools of a certain conjuncture and need, are possible threats of the day after tomorrow. Sad as much as non wise.
The story goes on (and on) all over the world and one of our aims is to present, to synthesize and to analyze the interrelation between the facts, their source and their consequences – hopefully.
