This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

I snapped this morning. Got an email today from some academic postmaster telling me to check my system for viruses, because they got an email from me with a virus. I replied, very simply: "Haven't you heard of spoofed headers? (bleep) you." However, to be perfectly honest, the "(bleep)" part isn't 100% accurate. Most of the time I just delete, but for them to tell me my computer is screwed up was the straw that broke the camel's back.

You know, I get about 20 emails a day from postmasters telling me my mail has bounced for a variety of reasons -- when I never sent them email in the first place. I am sick and tired of it. I realize that it's just an autoresponder, but those autoresponders are written by humans. Viruses can spoof headers, you know. I'd find a link for you, but I've already spent too much time with this. Use Google.

Yo, email server admins out there: Quit bouncing! You're using up bandwidth and my patience.
