Carocat, I think we are essentially in agreement. But it's not good to encourage people to put email addys in a public forum.
The little site I maintain for work gets only about four hundred hits per week and even with those low number of hits, I deal with a dozen or so spam emails. It seems like there used to be a higher percentage of spam emails there, so perhaps the filters on that email are really getting better.
I'm sure the number of views here in the forum is much higher, and would result in many more spam emails. They may be mostly harmless, but still a pita to deal with.
