A postal query

Every time I go on vacation, I need to verify at least twelve postal addresses belonging to friends who move often or live in multiple places. I should develop some kind of web registry where people can update their information, but where not just anyone can read it. I would not recommend posting them as comments, as I am presently immersed in a shooting war with various spammers who want to hock pills and stolen software to my esteemed readership.

In the mean time, friends anywhere are encouraged to email me their addresses (to milan dot ilnyckyj at politics dot ox dot ac dot uk). If I get more than twenty requests, I will probably only fill the first twenty. After all, I have already sent about eighteen.

Author: Milan

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. The following people are especially requested to send me their current addresses, as I either have none for you with me or have serious doubts that you still live there:

    Alison Benjamin
    Lindi Cassel
    Linnea Mobrand

  2. I also have my doubts about the addresses for Sasha Wiley, Zandara Kennedy, Neal Lantela, and Ian Townsend-Gault.

    On the off chance that Vicki Lyus or Eva Burneko is reading this, an email would be much appreciated.

  3. I think spammers may be targetting Spam Karma protected blogs, specifically. I have been seeing Google hits for people searching for the string SK2 adds to the bottom of pages.

  4. I second the Plaxo suggestion. Not sure how compatible it is with other email services, but it works well with Outlook and Outlook Express.
