|How did I get on a spam list?|
There are many ways that spammers collect email addresses allowing them to build mailing lists. Although you need to be careful where you leave your e-mail address - at websites, in newsgroup posts and when chatting, sometimes you'll end up on a distribution list without even exposing your address! It's common for spammers to guess potentially valid addresses by taking a common Username and adding valid domains to it. For example, chances are there will be a "bob@" at just about any provider's domain.
