Cool Gmail Trick to Fight Spam

Are you afraid of getting spammed when you provide your email address?

Gmail supports "plus-addressing" - just add a plus sign "+" and a word before the "@" sign to create as many new email addresses as you want.

For example, if your email address is "user@gmail.com", mail sent to "user+newsletter@gmail.com" will also reach you.

Later you use Gmail's filters to kill emails to that address if it falls into the wrong hands.
