Notifying "Favorites" of new e-mail address

by Irv / May 30, 2004 8:20 AM PDT

Is there a way of overcoming protracted IDing to each one individually? Sounds like it could be sort of a responsible "spam". Notifying each on on the list (about 40 or 50 favorites--including my account at CNET) makes it formidable. I suppose I could setup new accounts at the new address, but that would be doing precisely what I am trying to avoid. Moreover, setting up a parallel set would be, to my sense of propriety, hoggish and irresponsible.

I'm afraid not.

An e-mail address is a nice identification tool, like your SSN or your telephone number or home address, or your name and birthdate, but they all are cumbersome if they change. And there certainly is no standard way of registering and changing your data at websites, which makes it even more cumbersome.

It's still a long time to a universally adapted and accepted ID-mechanism. One of the ways would be to have every PC equipped with a rfid-reader, and every person on earth having an rfid-chip implanted. But you wouldn't want that either, probably.

Disasppointing, and I DO appreciate your reply tho it means I have to get to my Favorites list.(It should be good news to the ISP I'm expecting to divorce. since "they" can do nasty things before they let go. (For documentation visit "The Complaint Station" via Google, then click on "J" for Juno and you'll get a carload of disgruntlement.)
