Am I the only one receiving a load of spam about teen movies etc today?

Don't think I've been anywhere on the net to provoke it all

Some spams just use dictionary method for their email addresses. Their automtic system just generate address by going through letter and number etc automatically. So no-one can escape from that.

Just delete and ignore them.

cannot help but notice that your "name" adds up to 16........

Got to chuckle

However, 36 in 2 hrs seems a bit ott

Only been on Argos looking for a George Foreman grill today, but there you go

I ordered a load of stuff from Screwfix yesterday but should a tile cutter and a couple of radiator thermostats produce such a response?

Joking aside, I've had an e-mail address for a number of years and the ISP doesn't have a spam filter. I've got Mailwasher and so, as suggested above, I just delete all this garbage, but you have to wonder how much it is costing to provide server space to cope with all this rubbish

depends on what the tile cutter is up to and to what temperature the radiator controls are set............

Assuming that you don't want these messages (not clear) use Mailwasher click here

i have an account at www. freeuk.com and regularly get about 20 e-mails a day all porn/penis enlargement (i need to know who has been talking lol)/viagra etc.......

as for my hotmail account well thats another 20 e-mails of spam every day.

just delete the e-mails, NEVER reply or click a link to remove yourself (all that does is alert them to the fact that the e-mail address is active)

always use a disposable e-mail address if possible click here to avoid spam. Wanadoo spam filter works very well now.
