[ih] Defamation lawsuit brought by self-proclaimed email "inventor" settles

Personally, I?m happy for Ayyadurai to lay claim to the invention of email. Wouldn?t it be nice if whenever people complain to you about spam or fake news chains, you can just say ?Hey, what do you expect? This stuff was created by an adolescent doing a part time job. What do you expect, a grown-up design? LOL.?
