Let's leave aside the privacy issues involved in tying your MySpace page together with your e-mail and domain services. I'm more worried that services like PimpedEmail will actually lower technical literacy in Web users by hiding what's really going on when you create the address madleetz@worldofannalee.com. Not only does PimpedEmail take money away from its users, it takes away their knowledge of how domain names work — and by extension, it takes away just a bit more of their power. SFBG
