Hurts ’Cos It’s True, Again

OK, I have to admit it, I’m an email snob too. I have my own email address at (and have been thinking off-and-on about buying another domain to have for the family); I use my gmail address most often, to cut down on spam; and I tend to judge people’s tech competence by the email addresses they present to me.
I know people have reasons for using email addresses with what we might call legacy portals (such as AOL and Yahoo), and not everyone needs to impress people with their email address. But if, for instance, you’re trying to get a job (specially with a tech firm or even a tech-aware institution) or in some other way trying to make a good impression, upgrading your email address is an easy, low-cost/no-cost step you can take.
