Are you still alive?

A while back I posted about www.deadmansswitch.net.  Here’s the first e-mail they sent me to confirm that I’m still alive.  I like how it’s doesn’t assume that I’m alive, but I was hoping that it would be something more formal.  In either case it’s still kind of disturbing.

Hello you,
this is your plain old regular email to remind you that you should check back with us at Dead Man’s Switch, so we know you’re doing well.

To update your status, visit the following address:

Hope to see you there,
Dead Man’s Switch staff

For the record: I don’t have it setup to send any e-mails in the event that I don’t respond.
