    GOOGLE LOCKED OUT MY EMAIL ACCOUNT FOR THE CRIME OF USING OUTLOOK TO ACCESS IT. SERIOUSLY!!

    I opened Outlook to check email. The password failed on many repeated attempts. An email appeared in the inbox telling me to log in to google online. I did this and AMAZINGLY the password was just fine. I was advised that I had to turn on permissions to use "less secure apps" to regain control of my account if I insisted on using Outlook. I was advised repeatedly as I went through this process that I was endangering myself by being vulnerable to all sorts of bad folks. The suggestion that outlook is in any way inferior to google is %&$##!*&. Propaganda, misinformation, manipulation. Anyone else been subject to the drive-by tactics of Google?
