Let me tell you a secret - if you want a positively sure way to get unfettered love and hate mail at the same time - just go redesign a website.
If you've used Mailinator for any length of time you see we changed the website design a few years back. We brought it from probably somewhere in Web 1.0 to current day.
The redesign was more than simply a redesign however - it changed how Mailinator worked. A great deal of internal code was added to prevent abuse of third-party sites using Mailinator.
Overall the redesign was a huge upgrade and success - and I promise you the lovers far outweigh the haters :) (site traffic got a significant and sustained increase too).
Our redesign this summer also served to introduce Mailinator.com's anti-spam superhero - Mailinator Guy !
He's here to save your inbox from spam. He can fly, has a magic envelope he carries with him everywhere, and of course has a neato secret lair.
Now - Mailinator Guy has his own webcomic ! So if you're a fan of Mailinator and like to read webcomics - what are you waiting for !
