I have been getting these also, but I have been reading these sites long before that happened. It might be coinidence - I too would be curious. I just have my mail filtered out by mail carrier.

Most likely what is happening is the "bots" that continuously scour the web for email addresses are picking up the email addresses that show when you post. Bulletin boards like this one are one of the best sources of email addresses, from what I've read.

Bots are computers that do nothing but scour the web 24 hours a day looking for email addresses.

You need to change your email address so the bots can't pick up a legitimate address whenever they come across one of your posts. Some folks put in the words "nospam", ie <A HREF="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</A>, instead of <A HREF="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</A>, and then just tell people to remove the phrase nospam from the address before mailing anything.

Mailwasher.net is an excellent filter program.

i agree with all of you. posting you email opens you up to "junk/trash" mail. everyone wants to make a buck i guess. good suggestions...i doctored my email for this, but for someone who wants to contact you, they don't always think of it. donna
