It looks so nice.
Yeah, in an email address it's great when you can't tell if it's an "f" or a "t"...
It's not that hard; I've never seen "dot" spelled "dof"; have you?
And how often is "dot" spelled out in an actual email address?
I agree it's probably a "t"... but then what does the "f" look like?
Why spell it out when there is .com at the end?
@Hrant, those are acronyms, not words; they don't count. As for what the /f looks like, I wish I knew because it is a nice font but I don't know what it is.
@Nick, excellent point, one which I totally missed.
It's probably a "t", but personal email addresses are sometimes a fairly random collection of characters, especially if the user selected an address suggested by the site because the one they wanted was already in use.
Plus it could be Sam Dooley of Carney...
Like check out Places here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carney
I'm even seeing a "fear" in there...
BTW there are actually some yahoo.net addresses...
When it comes to email, Just Say No To Ambiguity™.
@Hrant, you're grasping at straws -- just so you can say you are right.
I just like thinking of how stuff can go wrong.
Holy crap, are spambot email-harvesters now going through our printed collateral too?!
Next: wedding invitations with captchas.
Dot is a common nickname for Dorothy. It's possible her name is S. Dot (Dorothy) Carney.
BTW Osiris, most ID experts frequent only the ID section, so you should repost your request there.
