Do you remember how old you were when you got your first email address?


Did you set it up yourself, or did someone else set it up for you?


Do you still have access to it now, or has it been deactivated or abandoned?


BONUS QUESTION: Have you had any past email addresses that would make you cringe or feel too embarrassed to share with anyone?

No. Yes. No. No.

I probably got an email address because it was required for some occupation I was involved in at the time, but I don't remember when. I definitely set it up myself. It, like so many things, is lost to the anus of time. I don't do embarrassing things, so no.

God, I don't know sometime between 12-15. I set it up myself. Long since abandon, think it was a hotmail account. Oh sure, I'm sure there were random emails about penis enlargement.

2002, and my dad set it up for me. I don't use it much since because Gmail was born into the world. I still use it for any promotional things, where they will probably sell it, and I would get more junk mail.

I think I needed to for something for PlayStation at the time.

Back in 1996 I think...

I still have that address because Yahoo later bought that email provider *grumble grumble* and took its technology to make its Yahoo Mail


Now we all know what's happening to Yahoo. Ha, serves it right...

(edit: I got it myself. I forgot how I looked up that provider)

I was probably around 8-10 years old.

I set it up.

I still use it as my main email account. Too much trouble switching everything over to others.

No not really. Some are definitely bad but I don't really care.

Do you remember how old you were when you got your first email address?


Not really--9 or 10 I would guess; it was in the late 90s regardless.



Did you set it up yourself, or did someone else set it up for you?


Self.



Do you still have access to it now, or has it been deactivated or abandoned?


Abandoned as hell!



BONUS QUESTION: Have you had any past email addresses that would make you cringe or feel too embarrassed to share with anyone?


Yes, the same as mentioned above. I don't remember the exact email address, but I'm pretty sure it was kssuperpimp

And i have been using the same one for a long time but also via multiple sources (same name just @ serveral different sevice providers and etc) and must admit that the illiterate/rap influenced spelling actually dose embarrass me a bit now.

The worst thing about computers for me is how the internet completely ruined my attention span
