Sick of giving out your email address?

I just discovered something that has probably been around for a long time, but its new to me. I wish I had known about this a long time ago... temporary email addresses. You know when you are filling out forms or registering for something that you KNOW you are going to get spam from, like if you want to read an article, they make you put in your email address... well you can use a temporary email address from different services. http://www.mailinator.com/ (slogan: let them eat spam) and http://www.tempinbox.com/ allow you to simple put any word in front of @ and the spam goes to them for example you could put nospamforme@mailinator.com or flowers@tempinbox.com  read that article and you will never get an email again!



Caution: do not use these if you need the website or service to communicate with you.
