I have been using a bogus address when posting in ngs for about a year\nnow and the amount of my SPAM has fallen down considerably. I don't get\nmore than a couple a day. I remember last year when some of the email\nworms got out I was getting emails in the order of 1,000/day.\n\nI was wondering what are the current SPAM statistics for people who use\ntheir valid email addresses so I could compare with mine. (Although I\nguess I won't find many who still do post with their real addys in this\ngroup). More of an informative question.\n\nI also know that email worms harvest addys from address books, but the\nlatest amount of spam I am getting sounds promising. Which means that\nmany people have cleaned their machines? Or what?
