I just love getting sappy Customer Support e-mails from Microsoft, don’t you?

Just kidding. But I mentioned several times about the stupid spam on Live Spaces, so I thought I should do the right thing and report the naughty spammer.

I did, and I exchanged an e-mail from Microsoft, and this is what I got in return:

"Hello Michael,

Ok, the letter wasn’t awful, but that’s it? So Live Spaces is suggesting I have NO comments at all? Wrong. I don’t want SPAM on this site. Not comments in general. I love getting comment. NOT SPAM.

He did not that the will be "monitoring the person responsible" but I’m not sure if that’s a promise, if their solution before that was simply disabling everything. I’m guessing Live Spaces just really doesn’t care about spammers. Kinda sad.
