I secretly think it’s the best way to analyze trends in student behavior: what we decide to use as our moniker.

Ditto with students who have, ahem, interesting email addresses (e.g. crazysexyfatchick). Somehow the Viagra ads keep getting through though! Still, I wouldn’t turn off my spam filters because if I did I would get 400+ emails a day. It’s much easier to just retrieve the handful of legitimate ones.

I should’ve realized that might hit on the spam filters!

Luckily I don’t get many spam emails…. yet. Not looking forward to them.
