REALLY Do Not Reply

You know those automated emails we all get from banks, insurance companies, utilities et al;? Many of them use a "donotereply.com" return address because a lazy IT department doesn't want to 1) deal with replies and 2) doesn't want to deal with bouncebacks.

Now here's the scary thing... someone owns that "donotreply.com" domain, and gets all those replies/bouncebacks. Why is that scary? Go and read his blog.

That is incredible. That site just might end up in my top favs list. I am constantly telling co-workers, et al, that the internet is a wondrous but dangerous place and will eat the ignorant alive, with ketchup. Caution must be used at all times.
