Dodge It

Remember a while back I mentioned Mailinator, a genius little service that allows you to use truly disposable e-mail addresses? To use it, you didn’t need to sign up for an account or any such thing, you just used when signing up to view an article online once. It was great because it was simple, fast, and still allowed you to check the mailbox in case you needed to get a bit of information.

dodgeit takes Mailinator one step further… it allows you to subscribe to any disposable e-mail address as an RSS feed. Pretty cool. Maybe not terribly useful for the average person, but it does have some potential geek usage and helps push the envelope a bit. Go ahead and subscribe to‘s feed.

And who knows… maybe there’s a little something sitting in the e-mail box as you read this.

I subscribe to a lot of newsletters and seemed to have gotten on everyone's e-mail lists. Since using dodgeit, my e-mail box is much less cluttered.

If you do not need the rss feature you could use Its far better then Mailinator.

How's it better? Seems bogged down with ads and stupid graphics of people giving the finger.

Any website with a live chat box on its front page is classy.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
