use a fake email

I didn't want to give them my main email address, so I used one that I don't ever check. Unfortunately, I was then presented with instructions to open the email they had just sent me to download the shell. Well, I used the browser's back button to go change to a valid email address, but it took me to the Monad description page, so I clicked the continue button again, and it just downloaded the shell this time!

Long story short, you don't need to use a valid email address to get Monad. ;)

If you realy think Microsoft is going to spam you then you are seriously paranoid.
