I'm currently tweaking the new theme which takes more time than I thought. I just want to apologize for the lack of articles in the last days. Once the new theme is published I will have more time to write articles again.
I have been writing about temporary (disposable) email services before which can be used to register to certain web services without revealing your true email address. This is great if you do not want to risk that the website is selling your email address.
One should not forget the security implications though. Since most emails are publicly accessible, it is possible to access sensitive information such as password reset requests as well. It is therefore recommended to use public email providers only for sign ups where this is not possible or where it does not matter to you.
I have taken the liberty to paste the complete list from Sizlopedia in my blog.
