Idea for improved "#emails" indicator

Postby notaguru » Fri Jun 20, 2014 7:14 pm

I relish the spamgourmet service, and have become expert at generating emails on the fly.

BUT I WANT MORE!!! (or less)

It should be possible for this lovely system's software to recognize the first (or second, or ??) letter in an email address to indicate the number of emails that will be passed before they are eaten. For example, if the code is JOHNS:

---abe.johns@mamber.net = 1 email

---jack.johns@mamber.net = 10 emails

---tom.johns@mamber.net = 20 emails

This approach eliminates the need for a dot - number/letter - dot.

Or perhaps this has been suggested a few hundred times...

The addresses would look less made up. However, I suspect it is mostly computers that look at the email addresses. Most computers don't really care how made up an address looks.

It would require two or more fewer keystrokes.

With 21,337,197 Spamgourmet subscribers, each using the service twice daily, that's 85,348,788 million keystrokes daily, and at 0.107 seconds per keystroke, that's 2,537 hours per day that could be spent on other things. Such as writing supercilious posts like this one...
