Hehe of course when Carl at AOL claimed that, AOL based bots were still the 
single largest source of spam received here. Eternal vigilance......

The sign-up process is very painful. 

Microsoft Passports really aren't appropriate for business accounts, my 
employer don't have a mothers maiden name, or a first pet. At one point it 
claimed the name of my first pet must have more than 5 characters in it ? 
(Perhaps they should aim for things likely to have more information in them, 
besides my mothers maiden name has been published in the newspapers).

I sent a request for help, as the process fell over at the stage of 
authorising the first address range I requested. With a failure to handle the 
URL sent for me to click.
