Revoking internet access of people who can't remember their own damn email address. Become a fan!

My gmail address is rather simple.  Maybe a little too simple.  First initial, last name.  That's it.  Consequently, my spam folder is always full.  I don't see the vast majority of this, so it's a relatively minor annoyance at best.

But there's another type of unwanted, unsolicited mail I get that can't be avoided so easily.  Mail from people who can't enter their own email address correctly.  My last name is very common, so it's a phenomenon that started for me years ago.  Back then, when it was relatively minor, I used to actually bother to forward the messages to their rightful owner, when I could determine it.  Nowadays, this is starting to happen literally every day.  Every.  Single.  Day.
