    doesn't do anything except make it easier to read. Most often done to seperate a first name from a last name.

    example:

    tess.smith@glocktalk

    is easier to read than

    tesssmith@glocktalk

    Yes, that is an extreme example and I don't meet many people named Tess, but you get the idea. ;a

    The dot you sometimes see before the @ in an email address is a secret code that is used by people that are members of a secret society. If you print it out and blow it up about 20 times , you'll see that the dot isn't really a dot but three small sixes.

    SDBettas,

    You were not supposed to let that info get into the public domain. Now you are in big trouble. In a few days, Santa will visit everybody on your street except you.

    Don't worry about the black helicopters and the limos being seen in your neighborhood. Your family is safe but......

    Be careful. They will get you.
