I have one, but it's only ever brought me unwanted e-mail.

Well, if nothing else it put me back in touch with one of my favorite professors/advisers of all time. So, that's a win.

That's stunning. Tell me more about your email contact list.

Amazing! So you keep in touch with all the people you like, always and forever, once they're in your email contact list? Your email contact list must be more advanced than mine.

it's easier to email them out-of-the-blue with something relevant to them than it is to join a social networking site

Yeah, I'm not really sure why we're talking about this. We fell out of touch, and joining LinkedIn (and its intrusive listing of all my friends/contacts) was a prompt to get back in touch. If that seems odd to you, I can't help you.

I would like one of these magical address books that somehow provides me with the contact information of people whose contact information I have lost or deleted. Having such technology certainly would defeat the need to hope you'll randomly find someone whom you have no current way of contacting.

How do I block specific posters from showing for me? I remember people have posted about it from time to time, but am not having luck with the search engine.

This greasemonkey script to ignore users might work. I tried it long ago and it worked then, but I haven't used it in recent years.
