Well, I once accidentally ran into ukr.net like this when it was just being created and managed to get a three-letter address on it (no, not what you thought :)).

this is not enough - such a number of erroneously sent emails - exactly erroneous, not spam ...

A little off topic, but why not pontanutsya. There is no sense to answer clearly on the topic anyway - and so everything was beautifully painted by the others.

I don't remember what year it was, but somehow, getting stuck in a contact, I suddenly got a notification from the VK team that now we are free to be content with not just a chaotic set of numbers in the address of our VK profile , but we can be a little creative and come up with our own.

After 10 seconds, I already clicked on the "submit" button under the form, which was proud of vk.com/page. And damn it! It took fucking 10-20 seconds, and the address was already filled with some kind of Vasily! And now this link is completely broken. But I was also pleased with my laconic vk.com/a_page :)

By the way, / thepage of a certain Valentin Tronenko went wild somewhere and was blocked by the administration :(

As well as ICQ numbers, the short ones went to the first users.

Not so long ago, channels appeared in the telegram messenger, where it was possible to occupy a name address, and two "hit" addresses for channels.

I have two such examples: my mailbox, consisting simply of the surname and the mail of a friend - the year of his birth. An acquaintance really, in some strange way, managed to take such a simple address, and I was lucky that the last name is rare.

In this situation, time is a very important factor. Users who registered in the "first rows" received the simplest names. I have three mailboxes on different services. And all with one name. True, they are over 10 years old.

I remember that I got my first mailbox on gmail.com in 2006. In Russia at that time all kinds of Rambler and Yandex were very popular, but few people registered on foreign servers. So my email address is pretty simple, consisting of the name and the last digits of the year of birth. For some reason, it remains from the memories that my school friend of that time desperately persuaded me to register on gmail.com for a small fee, they say, her uncle created several mailboxes and maybe one of them could be given to me ... for which I had to pay then and did not figure it out, by the way. Then she created the box for free.

In addition to email addresses, I also have a pretty simple Twitter nickname, again consisting of my name. I still remember those ancient times when there was no one on Twitter at all. I followed several people and the messages appeared every few days.

If we speak on the example of Maillru: this mail service appeared in 1997, and I am almost sure that in the very first year, users made out most of these simple addresses.

The story is similar with other servers. Who are the users, when - see the year the mail server was launched. Sometimes such addresses are registered in advance by employees of the owner company and passed on to friends and relatives, but in the nineties in Russia this hardly happened too often.

It is also worth noting that such addresses are often transferred or resold by their original owners, and probably since then (just think, 20 years soon) have changed their owners more than once.
