08:03 am - Friends don't give out friends' email addresses to corporations
Um, yeah. I kinda don't have a cell phone.

Please stop giving my email address to weird SMS and mobile clients. It's exceedingly impolite and rude. If you've given it, please withdraw it. I'm tired of getting spam from them, and I'm not going to confirm that my email address is legit so they can sell it later.

I mean it, it's really, really fucking annoying.

btw: that goes for those filthy third-party internet address books, too, especially the ones that send email out to your friends asking them to "update their information" for you. Get a hard-copy address book if you're that godsdamned forgetful.

Didn't realize they did that. Not that I've ever used one & don't even keep my friends physical addresses in my regular e-mail client. But I do have a friend that signs up for all manner of things & I think has at least 3 of those address book things. Might partially explain why the spam count on that e-mail addy is so high.

I'm sure one or two out there might be legit. But I see no reason to take a chance on them.

Me, either. I never confirm my info when I get one of those stupid e-mails.

If she weren't one of the nicest people in the world, I'd probably kill her for it.
