Most ISPs allow you to have multiple accounts. Many spammers only find
their way to the "main" account. I always have it be my spam-trap. This is
by no means fool-proof as many just send to *******

A few rules of thumb. 1) Never reply to spam, especially if they ask you to
do so to remove your name. That just tells them it's a valid email account.
2) Never use your email address in a USENET newsgroup or website's
discussion forum. Many forums do require an email, usually as a login. Use
a spam-trap (main account, hotmail, yahoo, etc.). 3) If you must have your
email listed on a webpage (your own, an interest group, whatever) spell
things out (at least "at" for @).
