Journal: A new way to fight spam?

Journal by hutchike
I recently spotted a site http://www.mail-filter.com/ that fights spam by providing email addresses like fred.amazon@mail-filter.com, fred.offers@mail-filter.com, etc. The idea is that you can "switch off" any address variation that gets spammed. Plus you can identify the web site that leaked your email address to the spammers. Seems like a nice idea - has anyone tried similar strategies?

It's not so hard to lift yourself by your bootstraps once you're off the ground. -- Daniel B. Luten
