lifehack: whenever public wifi asks you for your email, instead of giving it to them, do this ONE NEAT TRICK

look at the name of the company trying to collect it (it will never be the restaurant or cafe, always some soulless data brokering tech firm) and type in "sales" or "hello" @companyname.website

give them a taste of their own medicine!!

@hirojin as long as it's not your real information, you're a winner!

@HYPERLINK well, without the +spam it would be

with that, it just goes straight into spam.

@hirojin o shit wait does gmail do this?! i think I learned something today too!

@HYPERLINK @hirojin Gmail does it, AFAIK most mail systems do?

@bhtooefr @hirojin i use netscape for email and for some reason I doubt they support this leet feature 🤪
