oh man - mine is apparently really common, although this didn't become clear to me until a couple of years ago, and then suddenly it skyrocketed. in addition to the usual idiots reposting hateful memes (those i sometimes even respond to with corrections or just requests that they please check their email addresses) i get things from military.com, Holy Land Moments Daily (and Rabbi Eckstein, who may or may not be associated with that); real estate offering in south africa, job offers to some englishwoman who is apparently applying _everywhere_, and someone's regular Mint.com updates on all his financials (which i really would unsubscribe from except i need the account password which i don't know because it isn't my account).

oh great...just got a new one:

Thank you for registering with the Department of Child Support Services statewide online application system.


this one i feel badly about. this is some poor woman who is not going to be able to figure out why she never heard back from DCSS...and i don't know how to tell her or them it's because she gave them the wrong email addy.

i seem to have read somewhere that gmail doesn't recognize periods in addresses, so my.name@gmail.com is seen as the same as myname@gmail.com, so myname will get my.name's email. anyone know if this is true? and if there is anything to be done about it?

wait - if i read the whole message it says at the bottom
Quote:
If you are not the intended recipient, please contact the sender and destroy all copies of the communication.

so i did that....hope it doesn't get me arrested for being an unauthorized recipient.

yes, this is true

m.y.n.a.m.e@gmail.com would also be equivalent

at one point I had multiple facebook accounts associated with the same email address (even though your email is also your login id) because facebook recognized them as different addresses but gmail recognized them as the same

one got banned along with most of the other pony accounts, and I deleted the other



this is also related to how I ended up mistaking myself for someone else

I just put "quit using to-do list" on my to-do list. awww yeah.

I put it near the bottom, though, so I'll probably never get around to it.



also I looked up the thing Wheels posted and apparently the cat was freaking out because they had kicked it?

I don't have to do lists and always end up forgetting things.

> rm ~/Documents/todo.txt

aaaaaaa! I can't do it!

... I guess I still have a to-do list. For now. *glares at todo.txt and twitches right pinkie finger against the Enter key menacingly* -- You had better watch yerself, buddy!



Note: This post is somewhat misleading. My to-do list does not actually have a file extension. It is simply named "todo".

as i understand it, the people had a himalayan cat and a 7-month old child. the child pulled the cat's tail, the cat scratched the child, the father kicked the cat and the cat went ballistic.

while i understand you can't have the cat clawing up infants, i can also see the cat's point of view. one wonders if this was the culmination of a series of baby-related incidents (if you hear the video, that was one seriously pissed-off cat; unless the cat was routinely on a knife-edge (in which case you would think they would have given it away ages ago), it seems like a cat that was more at the end of its rope)..also, what happened to the cat. (although i think the bbc said they were doing some counseling with the cat.)
