I never did like the idea of the webmaster account. Seemed like a
waste to me. But occassionally I'll run across some indexing site that
allows me to change my information in their index, using the webmaster
account to identify me. I usually only bother if they get something
wrong that I care enough to get fixed, or if I want to remove WHOIS
contact info from their index (both have happened).

When that happens, I will usually just create the webmaste account, do
what I need to do, and then kill the account again.
