Re: Spam


I signed up for the book and didn't get any survey or spam. I have never had
any spam from NGA, no matter what address I've used.

By having all letters in your email address, you're spam bait. It just
hadn't caught up to you before. There are bots that take a domain, like
"Comcast.net"  and run random number or letter combinations, sending spam to
each. When one of them replies (either auto-generated response or a take me
off your @#$% list, or sometimes with a hidden file within the message),
they know they've hit on a live address.
