The most frightening words you can hear from an acquaintance.
Oooo....I have the coolest thing that was emailed to me. What's your email address so I can send it to you?

Your options at that point are:

1) Fake a heart attack

2) Run

3) Commit suicide

4) Give over your email address knowing damn well every day for the rest of your time with that email address you will see the words "FW: FW: FWD: FW: RE: FWD FW:" every time you open your inbox.


There is no easy way out of it.

1. Create a "spam" account on Yahoo and give that addy out.

2. Yep
Keep two accounts... one you check daily or whatever, and the one you check "when you remember"... :)

4. That kinda works, until they start asking what you thought about the email.

3. I just give out DuStrange's email address
And when prompted for a phone number at an unlikely store, I give my old boss' desk-line.
