Okay, to everyone using my primary GMail address, here’s a little word of advice… You don’t own “germanshepherd”. I do. Not you, not TW, me. It’s mine, I use it and it belongs to me. So whoever’s trying to use my address to sign up for Everquest, YouTube and anything else, and whoever’s trying to actually get GMail to let them send messages from “germanshepherd”… Just remember that YOU don’t own it, I do.
I simply cannot count how many times people have tried to sign up using my address! It’s insane! Nobody else I know seems to have a problem with this… I’m all the time ignoring emails asking me to confirm account creations for things I haven’t even heard of, much less signed up for! I mean, how hard is it to realize that you don’t have access to this email account?!
I’m not getting rid of it! I got this address when GMail was still closed beta when each account had only 5 invitations. Stop USING IT!
(Actually, I really don’t care… I find it highly amusing. I’m not some moron who’s going to go “oh wow, someone signed me up for this!” and go randomly clicking links in emails I didn’t ask for… You can’t phish anything out of me that way, but it’s fun when people try.)
