I've been noticing that over the past couple of years, people with addresses mostly reply from addresses.

I've been wondering how Yahoo can afford to do that if my contacts are representative in any way. If you run a service entirely supported by ads and most of the emails through your system end up generating ad views for you competitor, you have to do something.

And if you're the marketing department, you word the press release so that it sounds like a wonderful new service upgrade.
