What Your Email Client Says About You:
The true measure of an Internet man is the still the same thing it always has been â€“ his e-mail address. The domain name is the equivalent of gang colors for the digital era. Subtle, yet definitive, it lets the world know exactly how you roll."
Now, since I have my own domain (and I'm not yet a public figure) AND use my own domain (this one) to handle my email, I cross multiple stratas. (Hey, just like in real life! Go figure. :-))
Just like Al Gore does know, Gmail users know they are better than you. Their houses are carbon neutral. Their cars run on solar power and cat farts.
Of course, as an obvious measure of my own schizophrenia, I am simultaneously a douche-bag:
If you have a domain name registered in your own name, and you are not some sort of public figure, you are a douche-bag. No metaphor here, just plain douche-bagginess. Double points if typing in
leads to a â€œ404: Not Foundâ€. Douche-bag.
A douche-bag elitist. Love it. :-D

I thought it was his porn links collection. Weird.
At any rate, my log name and e-mail addy are the same. Dildo power!
