Do Not Reply (.com)

You know all of those emails that you get from companies that say “DO NOT REPLY”? As it turns out, some genius programmers really like to go the extra mile to make sure that their users do not reply…to them. These geniuses program the emails they send to have a reply-to address in the form of something@donotreply.com. You know, so they don’t get the replies (or bounce-backs).

Trouble is, donotreply.com is actually a real domain. And, any email sent to that domain, will be received by someone. In fact, Chet Faliszek will probably get the email, because he owns the domain donotreply.com. He also likes to post the best of the embarrassing mistakes.
