Just lately I have been receiving all sorts of crap via email.

They are trying to sell me insurance, DVD burners and all sorts, however none of them have the "remove email option"!

I am wondering where they are picking my email address up from. Will they be trawling through these boards?

What can I do about it (apart from change email address again!)

Don't use the remove options dude - it just confirms the address is live and then you even more of the crap through....

About the only other thing you can do is file a complaint with or against the ISP where the SPAM is originating from.

Or use a freebie spam filter if you're not too technophobic!
