Spam, spam, and spam!
This Monty python routine is the basis of the name spam, you will get it, even if you didn’t want to! In the old internet, we didn’t really care about spam bots trying to find our email addresses, for example: I participated in mailing lists, these mailing lists have online archives that include the addresses of all the participants.
My email address is everywhere!
I have gained a lot by routing all my email addresses through Google’s gmail, it knows what is spam and what isn’t, and reading email in gmail is pure bliss!
