Parked outside my house....
There is an estate agent in my local newspaper who has advertised firstname.lastname@example.org for the last couple of years now
The best I've ever come across still has to be this thread
yes, tell them! Would be a nice thing to do. But will probably be met with scepticism!
You could email them, after all their email address is... oh... ah... hmm...
BTW, their website is a who's who of bad SEO choices, from a strange meta refresh to a flash splash page. Ho-hum...
http://email@example.com/ this is an old school thing that people used to do its a perfectly valid domain
I used to use it to track where people had come from, htt://firstname.lastname@example.org, a big car company used it a few years, it was like email@example.com or something like that. Unfortunately browsers these days are springing up warning about embedded usernames and such like.
Just took a look, that is my main internet pet hate ' I've just put your address in to my browser > of course I want to visit your fu**ing site'
That's like a shop having a locked door and a sign saying turn the key to enter
LBE, get 'em told, it's very poor marketing, including the flash intro.
that's because phishers were using things like firstname.lastname@example.org to try to catch people out.
just think of the chaos when utf8 & cyrillic etc domains start appearing in the uk!!
If they monitor their traffic (doubtful I guess). They are going to wonder why there is a big spike in traffic today
