One idea is to register a domain name with catch-all forwarding to a regular
account.  Then you can use absolutely anything for the user name, and even
include the site itself as the user name (eg use when
registering at ).   This helps make is easy to remember, and just
plain obvious where the name came from...

I have around 250 filters defined ... (and works well, but I can't tell where
they got my address).
