Have you heard of Spamgourmet? Pretty nifty! You can have a bunch of “disposable email addresses” without compromising your main one(s) to companies you’re not completely sure are trustworthy. Then, if you find out that the company didn’t give your email address away to 3rd parties (or hasn’t spammed you), you can always change your email address (if you had to create an account of some sort).
