Dumb dumbs

You never ever log passwords or other sensitive identifiable data in a log file. Not even when full debug is enabled. The reason for that has just been demonstrated.

Thank goodness!

Thank goodness my ISP lets me set up and destroy email accounts to my heart's content. Limited to 30 concurrently, as long as they aren't already in use at the time by other users (easy for random string names). I haven't even looked at the hower-many-hundred I get with my actual domain hosting.

Mailinator runs a bunch of alternate domains. I reckon most sites wouldn't know to block all of them.
