    Looks like instructions to me more than any scam.

    I shared quite a public method that I even knew existed before I knew IM existed and a Jr VIP got mad and wiped off minus 20 rep.

    Ok I send out mails like this when I break in a new email server........ Not many people will mark that as spam..... so it helps when breaking in the new ip...... or a new spammer was testing stuff. who knows, but i highly doubt microsoft would bcc to a ton of people... check the headers, look at the ip the email came from and then do some checking and see who actually owns that ip.. that should help a little.

    You should report that as rep abuse. ;)
