  • > I suppose have an inbox–inbox you

    What? Your comparison of “email” and “inbox” makes no sense. You send an eMail and the person receives an eMail in their eMail client. So it’s fair to use eMail as a verb: you eMailed that person.

    You send a face book message and the person receives the message in their Inbox.

    You *never* send an Inbox. You send a message. So it makes no sense to use Inbox as a verb. If any noun is to be used as a verb, it is Message.

  • Language evolves … over time chair, table and butter all became verbs. Even acronyms can be verbed: he was KOed in the second round, she OKed the proposal, they ODed on heroin, please RSVP me.
