In the last semester of college, one of my friends used his college email address -- awwwyeah at (university) dot edu -- when applying for jobs. However, this was the 1990s, and he landed a job without any trouble or concern over the college username.

Interesting, although most resumes are just run through keyword scanners these days anyway, so unless the scanner is set to reject people with those words (which would be staggeringly stupid), I don't think most of these things posted are deal-breakers. The hiring manger might not like them... assuming he reads your resume more than 5 minutes before your interview begins, of course!

The only really stupid one there is the "party email address." Yeah, that CAN get you tossed out, and I could even imagine resume scanners set to get rid of those applicants.

Yes they are. I once got a resume from a candidate that had this email address: alwayshigh@xxx.com

Maybe I should use my other email addresses? I guess GoingPostal@Gmail.com might be the reason......

The advice is for resumes that go to a person's email address not ATS software.

Yes.

Plenty of people still apply for jobs through Craigslist, where the only way to apply is to send a resume. Chances are a human will at least skim through those.
