Temporary email addresses; VERY TEMPORARY!

I recently had someone use a temporary email address to register in our forum. I found the concept of it pretty interesting if anyone is curious; or if you get someone registering with one, and you want to know more about it.

It's called 10 Minute Mail, which I've made clickable if you want to check it out.

Note: I have no affiliation with them. Presently, I don't see any harm in using a temporary email address; kind of like what Gmail allows, i.e. providing additional, and specific email addresses that are only meant to go one way. As such, spammers are stopped dead.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Thanks Bill for posting that! I immediately added a couple of domains from that site to my Domain Filter as I dont allow temporary, free, toxic and disposable IPs or email  domains to register. It has kept spammers off my forums for the last 6 months without a single spammer registration!. Good info. Great post!
