Comment: Re:I just use spam.la (Score 3, Insightful) 297

by gilesparsons (#17027264) Attached to: Easy Throw-Away Email Addresses
there is an odd privacy from spam.la, the privacy of crowds, much as there is a privacy you get from being on cctv at every step in a crowded city of millions that you do not get from being in a village. any message sent can be read by anyone; so although everyone can read your email, because it could be sent to anybody, it is, in a different way, private.

it is very exciting that at the same time london police want microphones on street corners to complement cctv, i can set up an anonymous email address within seconds. technology does not necessarily make lives less private; it just changes the rules of the game.

Good day to avoid cops. Crawl to work.

Working...
