If you choose to contact me by e-mail, my address is:
To send me a message, please replace "[at]" with the sign "@". The address is displayed in this format to prevent the automatic generation of unsolicited messages.
Yahoo! Mail filters seem to keep away from me messages I am waiting for (this is why even you follow the instructions below, your message might not reach me; I recommend using both addresses), but instead fill my Inbox with the fullness of Internet scam. Fortunately, they realized after many years that their fight against spam does not yield the desired results and finally allowed users to develop smarter filters. In my case, these filters prevent messages to reach me, if:
- They have explicit adult content, or even if the subject contains some less offensive words, such as: flirt, girl, woman - including other forms, to name some of them,
- The subject contains any of the following words that could suggest commercial content, such as buy, card, cash, casino, enlarge, free, insurance, lottery, offer, order, pics, subscription, trial, win - and other forms, to name some of them.
I believe that e-mail should be used for communication purposes only. "Communication" originates from the Latin verb "comunicare", meaning "to share". I do not believe that sharing refers to things that the sender enjoys and the recipient does not. I do not appreciate adult content, jokes, (fake) virus alerts, PPS presentations full of images, wisdom and viruses, messages that change the world's or someone's fate just because it is sent to everyone, commercials of any kind, newsletters or anything else than can be found with a simple search, and generally any kind of mass e-mail. I want to see in my mailbox messages intended to be seen only by me as a person or part of a workgroup or group of close friends, referring to professional or personal communication. I am doing all my best not to see anything else, and if such e-mails appear, I simply delete them without reading. Therefore, please spare your efforts of sending them and mine of deleting them. All support in not making my mailbox a trash can of the Internet is a proof of consideration and deeply appreciated.
Last but not least, if you use my GMail address, a.i.petrisor[at]gmail.com, I am never reading your message or replying from this address. The reason is that GMail filters do not keep spam away, and I created my own filter, deleting any incoming message except for specific addresses, automatically redirected to Yahoo. Since I do not provide this address for correspondence purposes, it should not be used.
Also, my institutional addresses, [at]incd.ro, [at]uauim.ro, [at]uatsibiu.ro and [at]cep-edu.eu, should not be used for any other purpose than institutional communication. I do not own them, but they are temporarily identifying me with the position held with those institutions and should be used accordingly. I do not take into consideration work e-mail sent to my private address or personal e-mails sent to my institutional addresses.
