For a little over a year, users have had email accounts here at the site based on an abbreviation of their name, such as agreg@... for Anna. Is anybody actually using theirs for any communication besides the announcements that I send out to the old mailing lists? I doubt it, but I thought I'd ask, since I'm soon to eliminate them. I can leave yours active if you want it. (shard@... will remain active for me, since it's only forwarding to my real email address.)

No problem; I'll leave yours active.

Paypal gets on my nerves too. It's good that they're stringent about letting you add just any email address and bank account, but often they're so stringent as to be a high inconvenience. It took me forever to find an email address that didn't block their messages as spam — not all of their messages mind you, just the ones that authorize that receiving email address as a real one. What, do they intentionally put spam triggers into that message to ensure that their later messages will get through?

My annual list is published. I didn't see very many films this year, but apparently I didn't miss much; popular and critical consensus is that 2008 was a pretty weak year for movies. Go »

I have been persuaded to give credit for two alternate answers in Pirates Week, the 10/7 Controversy & Scandal goo, and the 10/9 Literature goo, that numerous players made. Go »


I should have started this discussion a few weeks ago when the show was starting. We could have discussed some of its mysteries before it started answering its own questions. Go »
