Quite likely, Ringo will take a shit all over itself if we all follow that
link and put in different conflicting info. ;)
I want to know how the "stay up to date *automatically*" works :) Pretty
neat trick, if it can somehow intuit that I've changed my e-mail address and
what the new one is. Of course, if it's *that* hot-shit, why would I have to
enter the info the *first* time? ;)
The only way a "free" service that collects contact info can work is if they're
creating a list to sell to spammers.. Interesting that the headers included:
X-habeas-swe-4: Copyright 2002 Habeas (tm)
X-habeas-swe-5: Sender Warranted Email (SWE) (tm). The sender of this
X-habeas-swe-6: email in exchange for a license for this Habeas
X-habeas-swe-7: warrant mark warrants that this is a Habeas Compliant
X-habeas-swe-8: Message (HCM) and not spam. Please report use of this
X-habeas-swe-9: mark in spam to <http://www.habeas.com/report/>.
Ah yes. Spam is that which we don't do. ;)
