This article seems to be right on track. I've seen some really goofy email addresses out there.

And the funny part is, that their owners think the addressess are actually cool. LOL :^0

How about using your name or a version of your name for business and proper email

Isn't that boring! But that's what I do. It's especially important since I'm looking for a job.

ozlock, you probably don't understand the concept of "five out of six." Do you think everyone's address is an accident? btw, i don't know why these researchers think "extroversion" would be the easiest to evaluate. People can have very different persona online. That's one of the first things you should know.

Forgive my ignorance. Math has always been a problem. Thanks for the education. Perhaps my post is too nuanced. The point is that people "research" such ludicrous issues that we loose sight of what might be significant. We spend a lot of time dealing with Paris Hilton and that other ridiculous chick while society goes to hell in a handbasket--Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, anyone??

PS. I will rush out for a copy of "Math For Dummies."

I chosse my user name in 1986 when first given a company laptop for dispatch use. I selected my initials, the date it was given to me and I tried V W but it was taken so I pick another car model like PORCHE but finally found NOVA wasn't being used so I settled for that. I have never used any other user name and it is mine everywhere I surf. Yahoo, Gmail, Excite, you name it, that's my user name. I have changed the home e-mail address from @home, to @ATTBI, to finally @comcast.net. I still keep @Excite.com along with many others. I see no reason to change it as so many friends have it and along with company and client contacts it has become unique. I've changed my phone number four times since and that's a hassle too but my user name would creat some real headaches. I know of some who have multiple user names, depending on the site and to me that would just make things more confusing that it really needs to be.

@ozlock

Clearly you've already read "Sarcasm for Dummies" though.

Every now and then a fool wakes up and says things like this.
The truth is that everything we do, reflects something about us. The fact that these fools couldn't figure that out till now, is what making them look at these discoveries as something new. Which schools do these pass out from?
