  • Are you sure you told your email reader not to display/load images until you tell it to? This is they way in which they validate your address, 99% of the time.

  • Yep, I’m sure. I’m using The Bat! as my main e-mail client and it’s HTML implementation is “secure”. By this I mean that it’s implementation for displaying HTML messages is really old and it only displays embedded images and doesn’t access any external links. And naturally I don’t click spam links.
    Who needs HTML e-mail anyway? :-) Uh, when I need it, for those nice and shiny newsletters for example, I use Mozilla but I yet have to receive a spam message in Mozilla. Touch wood.

  • The funny thing is I have the same problem with the Astral e-mail account, it started receivig only crap messages, and I know for sure I didn’t use it in “shady forum” registrations, nor give it out in any other place. And what bothers me most is that stupid spam I get, coming in several strikes; I get a spam message for each comment and every time I post something there’s another spam message for each comment, starting August. Uh…God damn spammers . :)

  • I don’t know, maybe I’m paranoid, but I suspect that some ISP people are selling e-mail lists… I believe they are well priced on the black market, mostly because we’re talking about 100% valid addresses.
