You don’t need to go through a sign-up process every time you want a fresh email address.

That’s time consuming, annoying, and unnecessary when there are far easier and quicker ways to get yourself a new email address for sharing with people, using on websites, and so on.

Gmail - Separator - Trick - Way - Sources
