Alas, I have been found out!  I'm actually an advanced android in the
form of a cat, who was ditched in the street after the world conquest
plans of the scientist who created me failed to pan out.  And who needs
opposable thumbs, anyway?  Get the right kind of keyboard, and you
can type with your tail.  Unlike flesh-and-blood cats, I don't even need
minions to open cans for me. ;)

(It's much more amusing to see to see what theories people come up with
about me than to tell the bland and boring truth.)

This is a fairly old email account (from the gmail semi-closed beta days)
that I use mostly for lists.  I can think of several reasons why Google
might be uncomfortable with it, but if I had to guess, they're just ticked off
that I've figured out how to avoid seeing their ads even if logged in through
the website (and I can't remember the last time I even did that).  Or it's
the DKIM thing again.

I should probably switch this list over to my non-gmail account, but I'm
suffering from a chronic shortage of round tuits.
