Protect Yourself Against EZBoard Spam
Caddy says, "Here's an important warning about EZBoard: Many sites have discussion forums on EZBoard.com. The forums can be entertaining and informative, but be careful!
"Never give your real email address to ezboard.com! They will sell your email address to spammers within seconds of the moment they receive it, regardless of what options you choose when you sign up.
"We have caught them in flagrant violation of United States federal law, selling email addresses to spammers despite strict instructions never to do so. Also, every time you post a note on EZBoard, your email address will be sent back into their spam system. I have enough trouble with my niceness rating without this!
"You can avoid losing your favorite email address to spam overload by creating a new address on a service like Yahoo! or Hotmail before you sign up for your EZBoard account. Do this first, and then sign up for your EZBoard account. Hotmail has an especially nice spam filter that seems to catch about half of the unsolicited commercial email."
