I do it all the time on forums that require a registration to download. I think I'm going to start registering with a totally BS username and set the email to sitename@wjlafrance.org, so I can selectively disable email addresses if the spam gets bad. :)

I do this too.  Google Apps for Domains is a win.

Why don't you just use http://mailinator.com ?
Because then we don't know when the business we're registering with is passing out our email addresses.

Fair enough.  I guess it doesn't matter to me most of the time. :)

Pretty much my thought. I have pretty solid spam filters and a pretty secure password, so I'm not worried if people end up getting my e-mail address. I'm sure it's on Google somewhere anyway. And if I'm registering with a BS username I probably don't care if the site I'm on ends up selling my e-mail to someone, since I don't care about the site to begin with. It's mostly convenience for me (I don't register on too many sketchy sites anymore) so I don't mind using my regular e-mail addresses.

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.

I know, right?  This is pretty much the sketchiest site I use.  I mean, it's run by a gay Canadian, and there's also a gay sailor.  There's a guy who can't get laid who lives in California.  It's a pretty scary place altogether....
I have a programming folder, and I have nothing of value there

Running with Code has a new home!

Our species really annoys me.

With no mention of joe. I'm shocked. Appalled, even.

EDIT -- Fun fact of the day: There are 1017 members awaiting approval. Eff that nonsense.

I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

That's more a pile of wood than a dog.
