There’s absolutely no way I’m not going to start abusing this service.

You’ve Got Mail … and an STD

Study Shows Using E-postcard to Ward Past Partners is Catching On

WASHINGTON — If a card that reads “you’re too hot to be out of action -– I got diagnosed with herpes since we played” ends up in your inbox, think twice before marking it spam.

A public health Web site called Inspot.org has put the trend of e-cards, e-mail, and e-vites to a unique purpose: the e-postcard that notifies you that a past sexual partner came down with a sexually transmitted disease or infection.

The sender can choose the STD, and whether to disclose their name, while Inspot.org will automatically send a list of local health resources to the recipient.

Opinions may vary about the e-cards, but the trend is growing, according to a study by the site’s creators in the Internet Sexuality Information Services online journal.
