List behavior

I used to know a woman at work who had a valid email address <firstname>@<surname>.co.uk and I too assumed it was based around a website www.<surname>.co.uk , which turned out to be a non-existant site.
I'm sure those who know more about emails could find out where it actually comes from.

Just my $0.02

Who is  js at cimmeri.com ?
I see once in the past he signed an email as Josh.
He uses a network solutions mailserver but there is no webpage for cimmeri.com.

I thought this was a "real name" required list, or am I mistaken ?
It has been years since I looked for/at the FAQ so I may be delusional about
its exsistance or contents :)
I have always assumed that if for "other reasons" one did not use a
their real name in the email header, 
then it should be used as a signiture at the end of the message.

In my mind jS has not meet that basic level of Netiquette making further
comment or contact off subject.

Back under my rock ....
