Re: At Doctor Syntax, re: email accounts.
GMail's 'plus addressing' feature can save you time creating multiple email accounts. Just add '+ServiceName' to the username portion of the email address e.g. Jo. Bloggsfirstname.lastname@example.org when you sign up with an organisation and you can work out which organisation has leaked/shared your address or create a rule to filter those off. A dot also works in the same way and harder for scammers stumbling on leaked email addressees to clean up. Granted, it does not address privacy concerns if you don't trust Google but it's a useful feature.
