Which One of You Jerks Sold My E-mail Address?
I'm very protective of the only e-mail address that I actually use. If I suspect a website might sell my address to spammers, I'll first sign-up with a junk e-mail address and vet them for a few weeks before changing them over to my real address. My old friend Rob didn't even give his e-mail address to anyone -- he'd just send himself messages once in awhile to make sure his e-mail account still worked. While I might not be that extreme, I worry. So the fact that spam started hitting my inbox has me wondering -- who the heck gave it up? Maybe some old frenemy signed me up for truck driving school in retaliation for me sending him hair-replacement videos. That's my only lead so far.
