Mailinator spameter

I was just checking out [Mailinator][], and I wondered: if I posted a “throw-away” email address here, how fast would the spam start rolling in? Well, there’s only one way to find out!

Once this post has been online for a while, I’ll post the number of spams I’ve received at that address.

For those unfamiliar with Mailinator, it’s a slightly odd email service. There is no registration or password required (or even permitted!), so don’t use this for anything where even a hint of privacy is desired. Most people use this for disposable email addresses, e.g. for sites that require registration. See the [Mailinator FAQ][] for more information.

About Jim Vanderveen

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
