Don't you hate to leave your email address on webpages?

I do! Here's a site to try when you are presented with having to subscribe to a website to view content. This site provides login and password information that are "bogus" accounts, but will grant you access. In some cases, you may need to try several of the available logins.

And if you must register, consider using a one-time email address from Mailinator.

Mailinator is your personal disposable email account. Here is how it works: You are on the web, at a party, or talking to your favorite insurance salesman. Wherever you are, someone (or some webpage) asks for your email. You know if you give it, you're gambling with your privacy. On the other hand, you do want at least one message from that person. The answer is to give them a mailinator address. You don't need to sign-up. You just make it up on the spot. Pick or — pick anything you want. Mailinator accounts are created when mail arrives for them. No signup, no personal information... it's an anti-spam solution for everyone. Your temporary email account will be automatically deleted after a few hours, giving you time to visit the Mailinator website to check mail when you need to authenticate your address before you get access.
