"Abuse will always appear in your quick contacts"

It may not be as funny as the password generator which combined the surname of Kenny Wan with his first initial and the intransigent admins who wouldn't change his username; and it is nowhere near as annoying as systems which can't cope with singulars and the plural, nevertheless it would appear that the practice of using peoples' names in generated messages can still raise an eyebrow even in someone as jaded as me. Sorting out my gmail contacts elicited the message in the picture. I barely managed to resist creating my_arse@killerbees just for the sake of this post, until I remembered that I'm 42 and not 8 anymore :-( .

I know nothing, I'm not a fortune teller, and you'd be insane to think that I am. This disclaimer was cribbed from an email footer I once received. It is so ridiculous I had to have it for myself.
