A tip to reduce spam

Ever want to take advantage of some offer on the Internet but they want to send you a confirmation email first?  You hate to give them your address because you can count on some follow-up spam and who knows how many people they will sell you address to.  My answer:

Just go to Guerrilla Mail.  When you get to this page, you are assigned a completely random email address that you can copy to the clipboard and paste into whatever page is asking you for an address.  When they send you your confirmation email, it will pop up on the Guerrilla Mail page. Read it.  Click on links.  Whatever you have to do.

Works like a charm and you never have to worry about the spam that will invariably be sent to that temporary address.

I suggest everyone bookmark the Guerrilla Mail web site!
