Wouldn't you know it...
I finally 'submit' an article via my journal and wouldn't you know it... it gets accepted. Only I made the submission on a lark thinking it wouldn't get posted because of its extremely trollish nature. Wouldn't you know it... any trolling was thoughtfully removed by kdawson.

I am currently moving every one of my mailling lists to GMail and I am using it for sign-ups and then modifying my address afterwards to a private account if the service seems to be reputable. What about you?
