HAY GUIZ!

When I get a PM alert sent to my inbox, the sender is rmunroe which confused me, can it be changed to xkcd mail instead?

Just a wee thing :) thanks!

Used to confuse me as well, but now it amuses me.

Well, I figure you should know who rmunroe would be, if you read xkcd ever. Also, isn't the confirmation or whatever for the forums send also by rmunroe? You should know it from that... :?


FUN FACT: I typed mournrow instead of munroe in each instance in the above paragraph. I are teh lose at university keyboards. (Or, at typing in general.)

I got confused as well. It's not that I didn't know who he is, i just had no idea why he'd be emailing me.

They are of course logically sent from forum@xkcd.com, now go home; there is nothing to see here!

davean, I don't find the logic or the humour in it.

Frankly, if I were Mr. Mournrow, I would be quite perturbed to learn that the person at forum@xkcd.com were sending e-mail as though it were from my e-mail address.
