Default Microsoft is the world's biggest cause of zombie remailers

Microsoft is the biggest cause of zombie remailers in the world, because they make noises, but do not do anything to address the real digital inequities in the world.

Glad that some one is walking in instead of barking outside the door. If MS is selling OS in China, India and certain South Americas countries at 10% of the current price or based on income level ...... awhole lot difference will suffice, let alone hell a lot more profit for MS.

it also the only OS to have a user base that dwarfs any nearby "competitor"; what do you want? it's the target OS which largest benefits if you can abuse it, the install base is enormous.

But the real problem is not Microsoft, but ignorant Windows users who don't have a clue what spyware is, they don't care about it, and don't want to do anything to stop it.

if you know how the secure your Windows (you don't even need a virus scanner if you have a brain) then your PC won't become a remailer; what's that you say? block port 25 and the problem is gone.
