    Here is just a quick little tip you can use in your making money online ventures. I was just reading lifehacker.com (one of my favorite blogs), and came across this article:

    http://lifehacker.com/5341896/use-the-same-gmail-account-for-multiple-online-account

    So those of you who are buying 100s of gmail accounts for various things, could easily turn them into 1000s of gmail accounts by simply adding random "."'s throughout each of the address'. so anything sent to any one of these emails

    fakename@gmail.com
    fake.name@gmail.com
    fa.ke.na.me@gmail.com

    will all go to the same inbox.

    I used to do this with "+" for different things, but many sites don't accept the "+" character.

    Craigslist recently locked down on the +randomnumbers

    Does anyone know if the random periods will work with Craigslist?

    I wouldn't know because I use PVAs, but I'm just curious.

    EDIT:

    Just tried the +randonnumbers trick on Craigslist and my ad went through.

    I saw a bot doing this, but i can't find the thread anymore (non Jr.VIP).
    Topic was something like 'Get G.m.a.i.l.s ...'
