Let's get right to the question for it is most pressing, shall we? An SFist reader asks:

When should you give up your college email address? I see this from friends who graduated years ago, and it's annoying.

Agreed. While not on par with the war in Iraq or the under-salting of dishes, people who insist on keeping their alma mater's email address, ones usually containing a prestigious suffix, should give them up, say, no later than a year after graduation or dropping out. After that, it's a virtual Lexus emblem.

Any thoughts?
