Hotmail *does* care

The other day I received a spam message from a Hotmail account. What was surprising was that this was from the actual hotmail account, not forged. Not really being interested in 240kg worth of CASH, I instead forwarded the message to Hotmail abuse. I got a response today that they had shut down the offending account. For some reason that just made me feel like there still is good in the world, even at Microsoft.

Here's the email, sans the spam which she returned to me.
