So, you know how Google’s this huge, powerful, sort of bossy company who threatens to disable your account at the drop of a hat, right? Well, they disabled my BUSINESS account on Monday and didn’t bother telling me why.
I have to provide them a MOBILE phone number so they can TEXT me a code to enter. Then I have to change my password. I understand the need for security and such, but they don’t offer any other way to get your account back on. I’d have to contact their support team and sit around while they get back to me in their own good time.
Seems I got hacked and had to come up with a new password. Someone sent a spam message from my account. Fun.
In other news, Google’s mail system sort of sucks in a lot of aspects. For one it’s incredibly slow and cumbersome. For another it’s lame. No folders. But it does have easy access to my reader. Hey, how ‘bout that? F**king YAWN.
I dislike Google as a company for a lot of reasons. They make Microsoft look downright nice. But I don’t know how hard it will be to make the switch to yet another mail system, and do I want to go through that again (I had to do it to switch to Gmail)? I don’t know.
So now I have another password to remember. How fun is that?
What’s your favorite mail system? How come?
