An enterprising idiot

How’s this for dumb: a student in Ireland hears the name the new Pope has chosen, and sets up an email address: popebenedictxvi@hotmail.it. And tries to sell it to him!

Hello, don’t you think they’ve got internet access in the Vatican? If he’d done his research, he’d know that the Vatican, being a sovereign state, has its own top-level domain (.va) and its own website, or several (the English one is vatican.va). I think pope@vatican.va is a more likely address.

(Reminds me of the guy who spammed Usenet a few years back offering to search the web for people - for a fee, of course. Not like Yahoo et al who’d do it for free.)
