  2. Don't click the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of unsolicited emails

    Spam filters are catching most unwanted e-mail, but some might still reach you. Most spam is designed to get you to respond with your own email or to click a link to "unsubscribe." When you respond or click the "unsubscribe" link, the sender takes your email address and adds it to a SPAM database of active email addresses. You might then start to receive a large amount of SPAM in your inbox. Do not respond or click the "unsubscribe" links.

    Nice article. I thing you should change the title of the "Other Alternatives" section to something else (maybe "use a secondary e-mail address") since it is a quite important aspect when you try to avoid spam and there is no way around it (at least for me it is not an alternative, it is the only way :p ). There are multiple "disposable e-mail" services but (like you) I feel that the best option is a second g-mail account. If really needed I can create a filter that forwards some e-mails to my daily e-mail address.
