Good Idea: Remember, when signing up for things with your email address, put the name of the company as your name so that you know who is leaking your email to spammers.
Since VERY rarely is it important for any random company to have your real name, especially lots of free things that require registration, I always make it a point to use the name of the company or product that I am registering for as my name during registration. This way, when you get emails later addressed to "Mr. Stanly" you can instantly know which website is letting your email out, or selling it, and set up a spam filter accordingly.
