Spam from this forum?

As regular forum members may know, I joined this forum for this first time yesterday, regarding my 'new' computer.

I used a virtually un-used email address to register here, and since then I have received 6 spam emails.

Coincidence I would say but click here and your problem will be over.

You may find that you are notified everytime someone replys to your thread, you can turn this off when you post, untick notify me.

what else could it be?

24bitkid. I've just realised MidgetMan has hit the nail on the head. Notifications of answers to your thread. (Why didn't I think of that?).

If you decide to use Eliminate Spam, don't forget to 'allow' PCAdvisor, or you won't know when someone has contributed to your thread.
