Email – More Anti-SPAM suggestions

Ever been registering for a service you really want and get prompted to provide an email address – or you can’t use the service – even when the company will never need to contact you by email?  If you do not choose to set up alternate or disposable email addresses, consider providing a fake one.  Be careful with this, however, you don’t want to end up SPAMming some other person to keep it out of your box.  Currently, anything sent to @goplay.com gets lost in cyberspace because that company no longer is in business.  You might also check with your ISP to see if they have a suggestion for a “safe” fake address to provide.
