Gmail emails often have dots separating words, such as first and last name. For example, email@example.com. However did you know that the dots really do nothing?
The dots in the email address might as well not be there. Did you know that emailing firstname.lastname@example.org will do the exact the same thing as emailing email@example.com.
So the next time you want to sign up to the same website twice, you do not need to create another email account. Just add or remove some dots from your current email address. For example, sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org is equivalent to blasting one to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can literally sign up to the same website four times with just one email! How great is that!
This is called email cheating (XetoWare, 2014).
