I just finished sending out our email save-the-dates, and I was judging some people a bit lol. I give the people with silly ones the benefit of the doubt that they have a separate work email!
But part of what I judge is domain names. I mean aol, in 2013? 😛 this is coming from someone who uses live.com which is hotmail. I like using just my first and last name and I lost the password to the gmail I made 5 years ago!
So, am I a terrible person?
PS, this is all in good fun. My best friend still uses aol.

@ladyamalthea: I work for an insurance company and part of what we do is ask for an email as an additional form of contact.
It’s VERY easy to judge people based on user names they create for themselves haha. One guy’s user name was ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. He felt then need to tell me that ‘peepshow’ was selected because his wife loves the marshmellow peeps-NOT BECAUSE HE’S A PEEPER. And yeah, at that moment, I totally thought this story was waaaay to elaborate and this dude is a creepy peeper.
For my friends though I don’t really judge because I know them. I have some friends with some, well, interesting names and it’s all in good fun.
And domains are easier to judge. You can see where people went to college or where they work haha.
So I answered ‘other’. For my friends I’m all ‘meh’ but strangers, yeah, you’re getting judged haha

@ladyamalthea: I don’t judge too much on domain names (unless I run across a Prodigy one and then I laugh). I do think about the actual name through. I’m job hunting so I do notice names that are cute, contain inappropriate language, or other oddness.

My email is with AOL. I’ve had it for about 17 years and wont ever change it. It is basic and easy for people to remember. I judge when people have sexy or naughty or something like that or the #69. Lol

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
I judge when I see chatspeak/flirty or misspelled/cutesly words – “baby/baybee”, “hottie” “chick” “chika” “gurl” “sexi” and whatever else variations there are. I just imagine a total airheaded bimbo, which I guess I have to admit is more judgemental than I try to conduct myself… but sometimes I can’t help it. People make dumb screennames.
edit: I haven’t run across many of these since like 2003, but still on occassion one will pop up.

My friends must have boring emails. The most I can judge i guess their birth or gradutation year and their maiden name!

I work at a school and I must say that some e-mail addresses are so ridiculous. I, myself, have a silly email address from middle school that I still use, but only for close people. Although it can be the highlight of my day, sometimes I am shocked that parents use some of the addresses they do for their child’s school.

Nope. I cant judge others, considering I still use the one I made when I was 12. Its got bratty and gurl in it. So yeah, no juding here. XD

I don’t judge due to my hotmail which I don’t use as much used is a silly name and was made long long long time ago. Same with the yahoo email. What someone does for email addy is their own business.

I’ll admit, I totally judge on email addresses. I can’t help it. When I was really active in political campaigns, it was one of my jobs to collect and input emails. I’ve seen some of the most ridiculous email addresses from seemingly highly professional people. I have had the same one for years, I even have mine reserved on all the free email sites and have paid for a few just to hold my name. I also did the same with my first/last name combo.

@ladyamalthea: Eh, I don’t really. But when I’m looking to hire someone for a job and their contact email is email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org, you can be sure I won’t be calling them back for an interview…
And no hard feelings, but if your email is email@example.com, please don’t expect me to take you seriously either!

Depends. If it’s for personal correspondence then that’s one thing. But I have a junk account that is just for invited spam which is probably really random for an email address.

@ladyamalthea: I don’t judge if it’s their name or something like that. I will judge if they are using an email that could have been made by a 13 year old girl, like “ilovejustinbieber” or something similar, lol.
For my flute lesson business, I require that the student or their parent provide me with an email so we can correspond outside of the lesson hour. Most of the parents just provide their work email or something with their name in it like “SmithFamily”, etc. I did have one mom give me a ridiculous email address: kiss_me_through_the_open_window. Like that is ridiculous, I honestly laughed at it with FH later that night.

In highschool my friends and I used to like to tell various cashiers that our email address was “firstname.lastname@example.org” juuuust to see their reactions. I don’t really judge people, sometimes it makes me giggle.
