hey it's tomorrow already and all my emails (4) didn't win jack it must be because people are winning using their bazillion (fake) emails so STOP IT. Though even though I said it nobody will stop at all.

No clue about any bannings re: bing exploit, but I know there were accounts blocked due to the $1 a month from Jack's Links. If you clicked it twice, whether due to lag or because it allowed you to get a second month for a $1, it locked the account via billing until you called it in.

Thanks for the heads up, I am sure we are all banned before long, but what do they expect? Should have locked it to Windows Live IDs

That sounds like it had to go through actual charges with MS though. This is just winning codes from a list of 190,000 that were set aside for a contest. I don't see them doing anything. If anything, it's the websites fault for being set up badly.

That said, I made enough to buy both Resident Evil HD ports, so I'll stop for now. If nothing's happened by tomorrow I'll grab some more.

That's my thinking as well, since it was billed as $1 numerous times, they put a block on the account for billing reasons. I couldn't find any word about the bing exploit to provide though.

rpmboy's guide to winning this contest
-different email, address, and maybe name (John Smith is working 100% for me)
-real address
-use mailcatch

this thing comes in handy for helping people

Not sure if they mean this one but back when they gave you 125 points for referrals on bing you could create 3-4 hotmails a day and essentially get 100 free ms points a day.

Hence why referrals are now 5 refs for 25 points. 125 points = 100 msp.

Yup I followed rpmboy's guide to successful MS point retrieval and didn't win one. Oh well its just karma after that bing exploit I suppose.

If its karma, then I should be in debt. My emails are leftovers from that bing exploit ;)

I lost two times in a row then I won again, I amthinking those two times I lost was for me accidentally putting in wrong addresses

I've been trying mailcatch and not winning a thing. Using real addresses. Oh well, 320 points is better than nothing.

Nope got a lot of points and haven't been banned but I also saved a lot them in fear of a banning. I put around 6k on my account and saved another 8k.

Honestly, this seems more similar to the glitch where people changed a url and got a bunch of free 160 msp, 48 hr codes and banshee avatars than the bing glitch. If I recall correctly, Microsoft said it lost $2 million and no one was banned.

That being said, I am a little cautious about this one.
