[Groop]That mendicant, Jeff.
HA JEFF! HA I SAY!
I've been using the word e-ddress (that's how you spell it by the way, with
two ds) for three years, which beats your paltry 6 months by a long
shot. However, people used to laugh at me and call me names when I used
it, so I stopped saying it in public and became a closet-abbreviator. But
I'm out in the open now. Apparently people have seen the light and the
error of their former ways, and have come to accept the term e-ddress. So
I therefore reiterate: HA!
PS: Do two posts in one day mean that I've finally returned from
lurk-land? Maybe, 'cause I really like this email client (Eudora) a lot
better than AOL. I'll probably post more.
PPS: I would forward all the email that contains my first use of e-ddess
(I don't claim to be the originator, unlike SOME people I could mention),
but I unfortunately lost all my back email when I screwed up the
installation of Eudora.
PPPS: I hope one day society will be open and healthy enough to allow us
to eliminate the hyphen in e-ddress, and create the whole new word, eddress
(those brave martyrs for the term email have shown us it's
possible!). This will allow us once and for all to discriminate between
"snail mail" address (plain ol' address) and email address (new, cool
eddress). Yes, it's a bright future, indeed.
PPPPS: To recap: HA!
