Does your email address express your personality?

with 3 comments

South Shields Labour candidate could perhaps have been a “Tiller Girl”

How does your email address sound and look to your friends? Must admit mine doesn’t exactly spark the imagination, and most other people just use their name(at)whoevertheispis(dot)com. However, every now and then one pops up that amuses, most of them are using Hotmail, Yahoomail, or Gmail and have some quirky link to their personality.

I recall that former Commons Speaker Betty Boothroyd used to be a dancing Tiller Girl, not sure how tall she is, and I wonder if a certain Labour candidate in South Shields for next month’s elections either knew her or had dancing or modelling ambitions of her own?

Joyce.longlegs(at)blahdeblah(dot)com conjures up all sorts of entertaining and strange thoughts.

Do you know anyone with a strange email address?

  1. Funny you should say that.I’ve always wondered why an ageing, not particularly hirsute man, would want to be known as Curly.
    Is there something you are not telling us about Graham?

    • Thought I’d already related that story in the past. I’m quite prepared to repeat it if you wish.

  2. Having been in IT for 20 years great care should be taken with the choice of email address. Firstname.lastname.com first of all gives me a name to work with. From that I can find an address, from your address I can find a whole bunch of information, and if I apply some clever social engineering and get you to respond to a loaded email. Or I can steal a bag of your trash and find a couple of utility bills and start to order goods and services or begin to clone.
