I am a proud dinosaur.

 

I have unlimited storage.  I never have to clean out my emails. And it's free, free, and did I mention it's free!?  And I never get hacked.

I dropped mine in 1999 when Ninja Selling called it out as too personal looking, not professional enough. So, I bought a website and tjn@thomasjnelsonrealtor.com was born!

I had an aol.com email in the mid '90s ... and actually rarely ever see anyone still using one -- until last week!  I actually got a new client and when she provided her email I said "Oh wow!  I haven't seen an aol email address in a LONG LONG time!  LOL

I never had one.  An agent in my office has one, uses it, loves it.  Never been hacked.  I've used my name for a few years and one linked to my website domain.

I have it as a personal email account - I've had it for decades. That's what I use when I order things, so all the spam goes there.

Using participation mathematics, maybe 30-50. Why would anyone join anything, whatever it is and keep silent? What is the point? How can you know or be known intimately? Methinks people are afraid of risk & reveal
