Since Steen hasn't replied yet (at least, not in this thread), I'll
give it a shot.

I don't know why this is. Possibly because yahoo.co.uk allows you to
forward email, whereas, say, yahoo.com does not allow this for free
accounts (you have to use their webmail interface).

Because Christophe Grandsire, who is French (but living in the
Netherlands IIRC) has an account a .free.fr and could give out
subdomains to friends, including Steen.

The two 'y's in 'skrzypszy' are vowels; the word is a Wenedyk form of
Latin 'scripsit', I believe. (Wenedyk being, very roughly speaking,
Latin with Polish phonology, and one of Steen's conlangs.)
