What on earth is their problem? As a law abiding shooter, I'm appalled at this discrimination.

I think it may be time for me to find a new email provider.

I just tried to find the direct link for you, but it keeps going to the Danish version which probably isn't much use to you.

Microsoft Services Agreement

Click on Microsoft Code of Conduct, hopefully it'll come up in English for you.

Looking at the bumf I'd say it was a Septic shyster's Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free clause, it prohibits nearly everything so if the wheels fall off Microsoft can't be held to acct as a facilitator.
But there again WTF would I know.

On the other hand E-Bay & it's subsidiary PayPal are/were run by a rabid anti-gunner, (I think she was tag-teamed by the Protectors of the Yellow Dog,) and stopped guns & parts sales on those sites.
