Solution to spam?

I think not. Heck, I'll just create 100 of those email accounts, and just sign up for all the spam I want. I won't use them for real email, of course. The good thing about it is that the startup still makes money, so they don't go out of business. The only losers are the spammers. Give 'em a taste of their own medicine, I say.

Or you could go to, y'know, www.spambox.us and create an email box that expires in an hour. :)
