How I Beat Spammers

MailinatorIt's just this easy. I don't give my email address to people I don't trust. When strangers -- or websites -- want my email address, I'm hahaha@mailinator.com. Go ahead. Spam me, baby.

With Mailinator, I make up any name I want at the Mailinator domain, and it's mine. It's yours, too, if you want it. No registration, no login. Just retrieve your mail. Or better yet, ignore it. It'll disappear after a few hours. But who cares? Did you really want to read the spam?

Oh, Mailinator has a few alternative domain names, too, in case the potential spammer who wants your address is onto this workaround.

What do you do to fight spam?
