I don't wanna offend anybody at all.

6,8,9 are lucky numbers in Chinese. 6 means able and successful.
8 means earning money and get rich. 9 means long time and long life.
Some Chinese even spent much money to gain an auto license or mobile
phone number which ends with 6,8 or 9.

And more, the pronunciation of 6 in Chinese is the same as "liu".
And the email address without numbers is occuppied by somebody else.
That is why I choose this as my e-mail address.
