    I didn't know about it either until they announced it was going, And my guess is that none of my friends do as I don't think I have received any. Gee, Wonder why it didn't work. :)

    Oh wow, I had completely forgotten they were doing the email thing. I remember reading it here when they made the announcement, but completely forgot about it when they actually opened it up, lol.

    I remember at one point they gave me a @facebook.com but I thought it was only to be used for facebook and stuff so I never actually used it.

    You don't speak on behalf of everyone. I was interested just to keep up to date with what's going on lately.
