    "Sometimes Bad is Bad"

    July 15, 2005  |   By sleinagain

    Version: Windows Live Messenger 2012 7.0.0816

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

    First I love the features, at least in my minds eye because I can't log in with any consistent luck. From time to time I will open the old messenger and there it is boring but dependable.
    When 7.0 works and logs on its great, but it is otherwise useless.

    "feature request"

    April 8, 2005  |   By zerointeger

    Version: Windows Live Messenger 2012 7.0.0777

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I am envisioning a chat session where my little sister is chatting away with someone she met online and that person begins to make sexual advances. Instead of her having to take time to get offline, remember everything that was said during the conversation and only armed with that person's screen name and testimony of the conversation that took place, she could simply click a button on that chat session window which would pull in the aim user handle of both parties, the contents of the conversation window, as well as the server which initiated the chat and the remote ip of both parties involved, do a whois on the isp of those ip addresses, and automaticly post that information to a online form such as the one found at https://secure.missingkids.com/missingkids/servlet/CybertipServlet?LanguageCountry=en_US.

    I realize there may implications to doing something like this such as abuse by anyone having a particular bias against another but with the ability (according the msn sdk) to read the contents of chat session window without user interaction, I can forsee a system where the conversation in question can be processed and assigned a severity level to help drive traffic down, I can also see a disclaimer for the user that is flagging the conversation to have to agree that the concern is a valid one.

    "MSN Messenger 7x"

    October 31, 2004  |   By CaptainSpeleo

    Version: Windows Live Messenger 2012 7.0.0332 beta

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'm currently using version 7.0.0332, and it works just fine. In order to get version 7.0.0205 or newer to work though, you have to install the patch for it after installing the program. You can obtain the patch from http://www.tcmagazine.info/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downloads&file=index&req=viewdownloaddetails&lid=137
