the law is no protection
I glanced at my ~10,000 unread email count across all of my various inboxes and it reminded me of the post that initially inspired me to stop caring about inbox zero or spending any significant amount of time reading or managing email. I thought folks here might enjoy it.

I've done various stuff like have a catch-all email domain so I can sign up for stuff with email addresses like ttf@myemaildomain.com, use dedicated email addresses for online shopping, etc., but simply ignoring email altogether has been the most relaxing option.

it kind of sucks what email's become (it's definitely no longer a medium I use to communicate on a personal level with anyone), but oh well. anyone have an unread count higher than 10k?
