"I've always been puzzled by the term 'Drug Enforcement Agency', by the way: how, exactly, does one enforce drugs? I guess 'Thieving Bastards Who Confiscate People's Property' already belonged to the IRS." -- Kim du Toit

Get enough SPAM lately? Have you ever gone to a website that asks for your email address for no reason (other than they are going to sell it to the highest bidder so you get spam forever)?

Welcome to Mailinator(tm) - Its no signup, instant anti-spam service. Here is how it works: You are on the web, at a party, or talking to your favorite insurance salesman. Wherever you are, someone (or some webpage) asks for your email. You know if you give it, you're gambling with your privacy. On the other hand, you do want at least one message from that person. The answer is to give them a mailinator address. You don't need to sign-up. You just make it up on the spot. Pick or - pick anything you want (up to 15 characters before the @ sign).

Later, come to this site and check that account. Its that easy. Mailinator accounts are created when mail arrives for them. No signup, no personal information, and when you're done - you can walk away - an instant solution to one way spammers get your address. Its an anti-spam solution for everyone. The messages are automatically deleted for you after a few hours.

Let'em spam.

# I bought an Optronics NightBlaster QR-2000 hand-held spotlight last night at the gun shop I frequent. Eddie gave me a good price since it was already out of the package. Uses a rechargeable lead-acid battery to get 2,000,000 candle power. Recharges from the wall or car lighter. Can also run off of the car lighter without a battery. Amazing.
