    Just occurred to me after reading the ‘paypal’ thread that I seem to be getting an absolute sh1tload of spam these days and wondered if it was in any way related to the hacking? And, yes, I did do all the ‘AT’ and ‘DOT’ business for my email addy in my profile.

    No.

    AOL has a good spam filter. I always aget a bit, but there’s no more than there used to be.

    Today I was informed that people were trying to hack my paypal account and that I would have to confirm a few things to stop it. – I don’t have a paypal account.

    Also I won the South African lottery, which was nice.

    Yep – I used to get zero spam, since the hack I get a few a day. I like to play with them though so I don’t mind.

    My works emial addy is supposed to have a spam filter but it must have some ****’ big holes in it. I am getting about 20 or 30 spam emails a day. Unless, of course, I’ve just upset someone… Surely not.

    Get loads of annoying phishing emails to my work email address,(including paypal ebay etc).The only email though i had registered with STW at the time of the hack was my Gmail account, so i guess it must be co incidence.

    I got a spam increase of a about tenfold as soon as I had my email published as a race organiser by BC.
    The email account I registered here gets none at all.

    No real change here although I’ve been told to check my non-existant Halifax and Abbey passwords a few times. Oh and I need to increase my love stick too apparently… They all go straight to Spam box though, my email has a good filter on it.

    I didn’t notice any more post-hack, in fact I reckon since Nov/Dec my yahoo spam has decreased about 5-fold.
