I was wondering about this lately:
The reason for receiving such misdirected emails, was found out exactly at 7:30am this morning, by yours truly.That person and I have our email accounts at Google’s Gmail service.
Let’s say our names are John Doe.
My email account is JohnDoe@gmail.com
The other person’s email account is John.Doe@gmail.com
Notice the “.” in the other person’s account name.
In a Google’s beta Gmail world – John.Doe is the same person as JohnDoe. But – JohnDoe may not be the same guy John.Doe
In other words – if an email is sent to John.Doe@gmail.com – two people may receive that email – John.Doe – the person it was intended for, and JohnDoe – the person it was absolutely not intended for.
Hence in this awesome beta world I’ve been invited to a “pot” (gaanja) party this weekend at someone called Peedee’s house.
