Whether it's at a bar or bus stop, unwanted suitors are everywhere. So a clever Web developer named Josh Santangelo came up with "Paper Napkin," an "e-mail rejection service" designed to dispense with such overtures without making a scene.
Just give a phony "papernapkin.net" email address to the offending party and let the service do all the dirty work. "When they write you, they'll automatically get a response telling them how badly they've been rejected," according to the site. "If they sound desperate enough, it may even get posted and ridiculed. Yes, it's cruel, so use it wisely."
