Email registration site protects your real email address from spam

I have just discovered a site for hiding your email address.

http://spam.la/

It’s supposed to be used for throwaway site registrations to prevent sites from getting your email address and sending you a lot of spam, but it looks like people are using it for adult sites too. An Email send to anyaddress@spam.la is supposed to be publicly accessible so if you register for something you (or anyone else) can go to the site a few seconds later to read the email or retrieve a password. The recipient does not see your Email address because you don’t give it out.
