I also liked the common people joke, nice one
Their ad money was clearly well spent.
However, in the interest of due diligence and in defense of Blur (it has been a week now).
Google/my rules already do a pretty good job, So I only had to check about 20 Spam mail headers. Verdict: no noticeable change in one week.
1) Found nothing in my spam folder sent to anything other than my real address (i.e. nothing forwarded from any blur made-up address),
2) Found no new mails from sites I signed up to with Blur, but I am pretty careful about sign ups anyway.
3) Found no new spam in my inbox.
4) My credit card hasn't been scammed yet, but I would feel uncomfortable using this CC feature anyway, so I don't
Hence, I don't believe Blur is designed to capture and sell my address to Viagra pushers, at least not this week.
Although someone could hack the Adine DB and steal all those lovely address forwards, they would just be sending mail to paranoid gits like me. We and Google would simply label it as spam. Not a very tempting target, although the CC numbers could be.
Adine could quickly nuke the compromised email addresses or use them for post-hack forensics, Sounds like a lose-lose for the DB thieves, at least to me.
So I still use Blur, for now. But YMMV.
