BugMeNot
« on: April 27, 2007, 09:15:40 PM »
I was playing with Maxthon's search engines and checking out what other users are using and I found BugMeNot
[attach 1][/attach]

BugMeNot offers
  • LogIns for various sites
  • Disposable emails
  • Shared Coupon Codes
  • Amazon Deals

Shared LogIns
The process is simple, users have created a LogIn, I presume that is verified but is not them, and they share it with all and sundry.

When forced to register for a site often you'll need to provide an email address to receive a 'verification' link.

Next time give them something_random@bugmenot.com and then read the emails below...

I generally use spamgourmet for that sort of thing and is extremely flexible, but BugMeNot email interesting non-the-less.

But what really interested me was there were entries for DonationCoder.com!!

When you log into that account there are even posts!

I agree: extremely handy, but odd when there's someone who could be anyone lurking here...

BugMeNot has a FireFox extension that lets you right-click login and select BugMeNot and it tries to put in the login information for you. Very useful.

What mouser needs to do is go to this page and get it all removed:

Did you use the Report Page? As that process seems to add a filter to the new additions so that it can't be added again.

If it was just the record that was taken off, then I'd guess someone's just added it back again??

i used the report page a couple of times -- it says its blocked, then it unblocks. weird.
it's not a big deal at all, there's no point expending energy trying to stop people from bypassing the need to register on the forum -- if they really don't want to, they will find a way and it's no skin off our back.

Yep, that's real wierd...

But that was what I thought was weirdest: was why would anyone want to hide here???

It's not a matter of hiding -- you have to sign up to download an extended or permanent license key, so having a bugmenot login would be a convenient way of bypassing that.  Not a big deal, but we do like to have people sign up and participate.

It's questionable then if they would have participated at all.
