Spam!

For the past couple of years I've been giving out my email address as mark@makesomethingup.blah.blah... where makesomethingup is replaced with something I make up based on who I'm giving my email address to. For example the email address I give to LJ might be mark@lj.blah.blah. This allows me to identify who is giving out my email address as spam.

Since Saturday, I've received a significant volume of spam to the email addresses I've given to the following organizations:
TextbooksRUs.com
Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty (Grrrr!)
TitaniumJewelry.com
RenovationExperts.com

If you've had contact with any of these organizations, keep an eye for increased volume of drug spam.

The jewellery site sounds like the most likely culprit. I have never known political groups to farm out hot emails.

Thing is... I'm getting spam at ALL of those addresses, and each one was only given to its respective organization. They're all culprits.
