If a site web page you wanted to mail yourself required you to give your email, also, 'your friend's email' and just for good measure another 'your friend's email,' what would you think; how would you deal with it?
Friends had nothing to do with this. I wanted to email the page to me for my use. Connecting it with friends was not even on my horizon. The programming would not accept just my own details. The requests for other email addresses made me wonder if I was out of touch with current social niceties, out of synchronisation with current information gathering. As I studied the mailing page, I began to feel just a little indignant at the impertinence of the set up!
It was time to outwit this programming. It is not within my gift to freely give the details of people I know to some commercial address database. My friends wouldn't thank me for opening them up to pestering about the latest offer that is really to good to miss (not!) You know what, I wasn't about to do it either.
I tried a couple of tricks, I was kicked back to touch. I tried a mix of address styles, big red boxes appeared on screen to tell me they were not acceptable. Clever, devious algorithms here. My next trick was gathered up and flew off into cyber space; it seemed to have worked....or, did it.
It's several hours since I input the data to the mailing request page, as yet, there is no sign of it in my mailbox.
Watch this space.
On a happier note…
