Maybe I just don't get around enough, but I've never had any spam problems, even on my second email address for memberships and such. (unless you consider college email spam and they offer the option of canceling)
[citation][nom]nekatreven[/nom]I'd written something I thought was pretty great in response...and was rather sad during my routine fact double-check that you'd actually not moved to the US and it no longer made sense....Something along the lines of being closer to the creepy nerds who hit on you in the comments, and a reference to this video. ...oh wellbanHammer.offTopic.deactivate("YAY AMERICAN SPAM!");[/citation]
Fact double-check? I've got a serious case of jetlag that suggests I did indeed move halfway across the world last week!

Yea...folks on here are ruthless! I almost always go back and double check whatever I've said before posting so I don't get roasted (as much). (for example in this case it would have been: "She moved to Canada you idiot")
Something tells me the way these numbers where gotten was by checking to see where the email address originated from such as your Hotmail account or Gmail account or what have you. So yes if that's the way they got there numbers i can see that with so many people in the united states using email and computers its not surprising since all it takes is 1 maybe 2 clicks to get your email address stolen then mass spam can be sent from it. Kinda like PC vs Mac with security flaws Mac has fewer security flaws (Found) cause of few users. Will most other countries have fewer PC users so you get the point.

It makes me think there's a lot of stupid people out there.
It will continue as long as spamming is treated as a game. Convicted spammers need to see "GAME OVER!" flashed up in lights, accompanied by a fail horn, just before receiving a large caliber round to the back of the head.
