I use Gmail, and it's been pretty good in filtering spam except recently. Although I have another account that seems unaffected. I have never published my email online for bots to pick up, except when I register in forums/stores. As of late, only the following stores are the ones I have used, so I'm wondering if any of them are the culprit. (perhaps they sell their customer's mailing list?) gamebygame / dealwoot dealextreme meritline I know meritline has disclaimer on their "Weekly Deals" section where if you use a specific coupon code, you sign up for their mailing list, but the spam I'm getting are real spam, (the domain are random weird domains, not meritline). None of the advertising I'm getting have an unsubscribe link either, and they all look the same, so i'm thinking it's from the same people. Anyone else having such issues?
