Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

Apparently there is some doubt as to why I found the fact of a hotmail-addy funny.

There might be a cultural component involved: here that particular brand of e-mail address is only used by horny teenagers, hackers, adulterers, and other people who have something to hide... it is considered very poor taste to, say, apply for a job from a hotmail-address.

A mail from a barrister via hotmail is sure to be ignored.

How is everyone supposed to know how attractive I am unless I email them from my hotmale account?

Yes and no. It's basically used for things that she has to register for or when a business asks for one, and she doesn't want to give out her day-to-day email address. But for quite a while, it was her only email address.

Understood, and today my wife wouldn't use her hotmail address for a job application. But as I said, there was a point in time where it was her only email address, so she did use that for job applications then. But perceptions obviously change over time.

There are similar perceptions regarding "Yahoo" mail.
