Subject: UKNM: Funmail and some rather "dubious" e-mail addresses...
From: Bunder, Leslie

While I respect the concept and idea of FunMail, is it right to offer
domain names such as "Jewboy" "Nigger", "Yid" and various others as
these names all point to Funmail.co.uk and seem to be some of the 3,000
names they will be offering.

Sure, it is fun to have e-mail addresses, but the question here is, is
it fun to use these names or indeed, is it morally right????

Call me PC, or indeed call me Jewish (which I am), but quite frankly,
given that JewBoy and Yid are rather negative words and indeed offensive
to most people, I find it rather sad that FunMail is launching a
service that implies these domain names will be offered to people to

Any thoughts on this!
