I may have reduced the amount of spam I get, so I will pass it on. A while ago in this forum, I read about the fact that the WHOIS directory is open for all to see. After that I checked out my site,click here and there was my full name and email address. That was a surprise I can tell you. I then wrote to my domain name provider,click here and they said that for a nominal sum, $10 py, they would give me a random email address on the WHOIS records. Since then my spam collection has reduced by about half. I still use spam killer, but I think that the web bots that crawl the WHOIS directory are now not picking up the address, so less problems. As I am now away for two weeks, I could do with a bit less of that. If that helps, and we could all do with a bit less spam, give it a go.
