Its a slowdown mechanism. For real people, it isn't that hard to just remove spaces and a (nospam) tag. For computers and bots, however, it will actually try to send mail to that...w/o removing the spaces or tag. eventually, a good bot might figure it out, but else, its gotta be done by hand.
Don't remember me as I was...I was an idiot.

Probably not, even if gmail kept the account active (even though nobody was logging in) it probably wouldn't let anyone log in; IIRC Google forces you to change your password if it sees logins from different regions on the same account. I ran into that once while I was traveling and I forgot what I did to get around that.

EDIT: Also seeing the users in this thread really takes me back. Has it really been 9 years? Wow...

It is crazy how time flies, isn't it?

I will unpin this topic, in that case.
