Speaking as a real live, currently employed, sysadmin (numbers bigger
than all the scientists in the entire world put together --- just
kidding with you Phillip)... "Yikes!"
Do I need a separate email for when I am living out of a suitcase for
6 months at Holiday Inn too? (I know I can use the same one as my
mailing list address) Now the guy I emailed is using that address in
his address book. Note to self, email him and get him to change it.
Can we figure something else out that doesn't require me (or my 200k+)
users to have to remember two separate addresses, the cases to use
each, and remember what the second one is the first time they have to
use it in 5 years?
