in thread When choosing user names for websites, I prefer to use:

With google, i can use email+random@gmail.com. The random part is usually the site name. This lets me know who uses what email and possibly to block. The only place i have seen the + sign barred is Quicken for Mac 2015 Beta 4. (Beta 3 allowed it.)

I also have my own domain. I use a subdomain, so email addresses are website@sub-domain.example.com. This works except when the site does not support subdomains, which is probably because somebody wrote his own non-rfc-compliant address validator. Sub-domain seem to be safe from brute force spam, as they send it to domains, not sub-domains.
