Well, I can prove it. I'm using different addresses for various lists, so I 
know *where* spammers get my address. And the address I'm using for this list 
gets it's share of spam. :-(

And once... *once* in a thoughtless moment my address I only use for personal 
use ended up here... few days later an address that have been perfectly 
spamfree for *years* started receiving penisenlargement investment from horny 
wet teenies through Nigerian Bank...
