    No, I see where he is going. You can use a Trashmail email account to
    fill in a web form. This can be forwarded to your regular email address
    for a limited number of times. If spammers get hold of the address, it
    will expire before you get a lot of spam.

    Its a very interesting idea. Good luck with it!

    I mean Firefox, but it would also be interesting to do the same for
    Thunderbird, specially for USENET posting.

    Yes exactly.
    But now I'm thinking, it would be good to make also a Thunderbird
    extension, where for each posting it verify if the current trashmail.net
    email address is not expired. If it's expired, it would generate a new one.
    I will see when I will have time to do this.
