    One method I've found very effective is to open what I call a "trash account." Open a Gmail or Yahoo account to be used only for web registrations and such. I'm VERY stingy with my real email address. If I need to give an email for activating rights on a website, I give my Yahoo account. It's real and perfectly legitimate. So if it's a reply registration (where you have to reply to the email to activate the account) that isn't a problem. My Yahoo account gets on average 3500 spam mails a week, but since I don't have anything I care about sent there, I can simply do a mass delete every so often.explain
