I did a Google Groups search as well, and got over 10 000 hits on my address.
Perhaps is one subjected to spam because one is an active netizen?
I've only munged my address on web boards one those rare occasion when I use
those. I got my address before spam was any problem on the net, and I think
munging is dishonest. I shouldn't have to hide from those spamming bastards.
IMO NATO shouldn't go after Bin Laden, and Bin Laden shouldn't be riding
airplanes or sending anthrax. They should all form a coalition towards
fighting spam!

I can't understand ANY current MICROS~1 product names!
Are they now created with a random word generator?
What is the intent behind the name "Visual Studio" for their compiler suite?
What is "Interdev"?
Why is the Virus Transfer Protocol product named "Outlook"?
