I checked out both your links and even downloaded your mod.

Still no idea what you're offering or how to use it, or for what purpose.

Maybe it's just me but you've not given much of a description of the use case.

Yeah... I'm also at a loss at what this mod does.
"This is really a generic concept about human thinking - when faced with large tasks we're naturally inclined to try to break them down into a bunch of smaller tasks that together make up the whole."

"A 500 error loosely translates to the webserver saying, "WTF?"..."

The idea is that an email address isn't necessarily just an email, it's the bedrock of an online identity and using that service you could associate links with the email or whatever else. Sort of like turning your email into a virtual business card of sorts.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.

Same link as posted in the op. Why would you think that's helpful?

I think I understand how something like your identity based on an email works but it could be wrong, can't you upload a picture to understand it better?

Can the author? Probably. Can I be bothered? No (I’m not the author, I just read the given links)
