Home Loans
Pr0n advertisements ( i dont know why i get this stuff i dont register to pr0n sites, i just look at the free sample stuff)
Mortgage settlements
and stuff saying my old classmates want to get together

new email account. they have programs that do *@*.com, *@*.net, *@*.edu.... etc and find a ton of adresses and update the list every so often. you dont even have to enter it in stuff, they'll find it eventually. make accounts that dont use actual words help, also numbers. names and basic, overused words get found pretty fast. if its gmail you probibly get it all in your spam folder... i would just not even bother reading it and just click "delete all" or ignore your spambox.

oh, and never type it in your myspace or online in open..... and use specail emails for websites that require an email adress for activation.

my yahoo (spam) gets ~190-300 a day and about 20 in my inbox. my gmail gets ~2-6 a day and they all go into my spam. dont ever open them, sometimes its a virus, sometimes its a trigger that notifies that you read them and sends you alot more.

dont open them, just mark as spam, the more you mark the less often they end up in your box

i hope someone makes a suit against spammers cuz of the new telecommunications act. they should have to get a liscense before they send anything.

i have hundreds of pbn spam... i dont know how they got the idea that emailing you every time one of their 300k users post in a thread youve looked at was a good idea.... i have to uncheck that box before i go crazy
