Magical nonthinking

From the Quora queue: If I create an email address with a domain I do not own, can the owner of the domain do anything to my email?

There’s just one little hitch: you literally cannot create an email address with a domain you do not own. Oh, you could probably tell some credulous dulllard that it’s your email address, but saying so will absolutely not cause it to come into existence.

And that said, whatever stupid prank you might have been planning will not work either. If you’re really lucky, it won’t be actionable.
