I have just deserted my main email address because of the volume

I have no plans of deserting my main mail address, and I receive
over 300 spam messages a day.
How do you stand it?? I had about one tenth of that, and still found
it worth the inconvenience of changing address.
Personally, I think that people who are concerned about receiving
spam, should do what you are now doing, do not provide a real
address to public messages.
Technically it's real, even if it forwards to /dev/null. :) But yes,
I'm posting from that address, and by providing a link to a contact
form, I'm still easily reachable via the list messages (including the
archived ditto). I find it to be a decent solution, and I won't be
affected personally of how this list is archived in the future.
However, I understand the problems spam has on people. Therefore,
I will take a poll (via a separate message to the list) on what
other users think.
Thanks for taking my concern seriously, Earl.
