    Concern

    Since I started to visit MR, I have been receiving a lot of SPAM, and SCAM, i.e. Nigerian scam, and other cr*p. Has anybody noticed this too?
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    I think I did give them my email address... But...they can track you even without it...

    It might have been a coincidence. Anyway, I wouldn't blame (I know you don't) MR for all the spam you've been receiving since you joined the board. I prefer not to show my "main" email on any sites. The thing is I have two free accounts. One is for everyday correspondence, the other is for showing it as my email in registration forms etc.
    Sometimes I wonder how easy it is to track your email! It seems like only the chosen few know of my 'gmail' account yet I regularly get loads of spam. Luckily, 'gmail' automatically puts suspicious correspondence in the "spam" box. So far it has been very good at doing so!

    I receive spam too. It's inevitable. The longer one has an email the more spam they receive with time. The reason is that spammers probe all possible combinations. Or you might just get a mailware on your computer. Take a note of other sites that you registered. Like ReDSanchous said, the best bet would be to have a free account like yahoo for all kinds of forum registrations.

    People, just don't click 'unsubscribe' nick in a e-mail. Spammers wait for you to do it (to confirm the address does indeed exists). Besides, you can steal e-mails of the forum users only by hacking the board.
    Send me a PM if you need me.
