OT: spam reducer mailinator

I heard about this on the radio today so I thought I would check it out. Basically you can makeup any email address and use it without signing up. Great if some web site requires your email address and plans on sending you a "confirmation" email. you can make-up an email address, use it once, and never go back again. You don't need to worry about someone else getting your address and sending you spam forever. Anyone see any problems with using something like this?
