Snippet from the CNET site:

I'm sure you're as sick of spam as I am. Much of it comes from sites that require people to provide e-mail addresses to sign up. Those registrations result in unwanted e-mail from those sites as well as any others that your e-mail address gets passed on to.
There's a new Web site designed to solve this problem. Called 10 Minute Mail, it generates fresh e-mail addresses for people that expire after 10 minutes, or longer if the user requests that. You can use it to sign up for a service and then forget about it.
