Weekly Round-Up

Well, we moved home and just got our Internet connection back, so I hope my readers will make allowances for my tardiness with this round-up.

OK, I'm trying to figure out the benefit of checking whether or not an email address is valid unless you're a spammer. In fact, I certainly hope these services have a way to detect if someone is doing this a lot and blocking them!

Even if an email address is correct, that doesn't mean the email came from there, so this isn't a spam fighting tool. If an email address is valid, it doesn't mean it is the person you are looking for, so it isn't a very effective address book.

So, why would it matter to a normal person?
