I saw this disposable email on lifehacker.com. It wasn’t the concept that caught my attention as much as one of the reasons Lifehacker gave for using it…
10 Minute Mail offers free email addresses that last for only 10 minutes — perfect for forums and signing up for porn (lined through in their post) sites that you think will sell your email address.
Though I would hope they were not promoting porn sites, I was caught off guard by the mention. Mainly because there are probably a good majority of people who use sites like 10 minute email for that very reason. That saddens me.
Have you ever used a disposable email address? (not for porn sites, just to avoid spam) I just use an old email address that is mainly for signing up for sites I don’t want to get mail from or to avoid spam/unwanted email.
