I came across this click here

What are your thoughts ?

Is it useful, a good idea, worthwhile or is it to be avoided ?

I get fed up having to register with so many sites and keep losing the login info so have to register again when I re-visit unless I only use the same log-in info for many sites (which is not very secure), would this method be any better ?

I should think its OK, I think the Firefox browser has got an extension you can add anyway. I don't suppose the sites you're entering like it much though.

I think you will find that most forum owners/admins check regularly for these types of registrations and will delete the account when they come across it.

As Nellie2 says it's certainly the case here

Thanks for the input, I was just curious and wanted some other opinions before I decided to go for it.

I didn't know this subject had been raised before but it seems the general consensus is that it's not a good thing so I won't use it or recommend it.

Cheers folks.

Depends on the site - if its the type thats likely to "sell" ur email add, then I would use it...
