Who’s Sharing Your Email Address?

If you use Gmail you can find out which poxy websites are sharing your email address without telling you. This only works if you’re using GMail. [check for others??] Imagine for a moment that your name is April Anonymous. When entering your email address, after carefully considering whether you should at all, add ‘+websitename’ before the @ symbol in the address. All email sent to April.Anonymous+spammysite.com@gmail.com will still come to April Anonymous’ inbox, but if any unsolicited messages show up you’ll know which treacherous site shared your precious email address.
