If I go to Eau Claire and drop a letter in a letter box am I required to
put the address of the box on the letter? Am I forging if I put my Elmwood
address on it instead? How about if I go into a library in Eau Claire and
send an email? Why should I not put my Elmwood address on it? Of what
possible use to anyone would the address of the machine I sent it from be?
