I’ve often heard it said that those who are high up in book smarts have no common sense. I see this theory in practice almost every single day. For instance, a particular multi-PhD/MD user came to my department wanting to know how a spammer could use her email address without her permission. Now, I only overheard part of the conversation between this user and one of our techs, but apparently she had received a recent increase of spam (who hasn’t these days?) and one alarmed her because it had the name “Logo Pens” with her email address in the Reply-To field.
Honestly, wouldn’t *most* people who had enough common sense know NOT to open such blatant spams???
So anyways, this genius decided to open it and replied wanting to know who this person was and what they were doing with her email. :shock: (Yes, I know, I know … bad user! No cookie for you!) Imagine her astonishment when her reply instantly appeared in her Inbox. After that point, she came to us naturally wanting to know how to make spammers stop using her address when they send stuff out.
I had to leave the room to keep from laughing in front of her. :mrgreen:
