Grrr. A short time ago I start­ed get­ting lots of spam from dotcomdollars.com, frugaljoe.com, gz.com, premierdirectmedia.com and networkmedia.com. I’d nev­er heard of any of those places before, and sud­den­ly I was get­ting sev­er­al pieces of spam dai­ly from each of them. I could­n’t think of any obvi­ous way that they’d got­ten my address.

Now I know. One of the pieces of spam referred to EMode, and I remem­bered tak­ing a test there. I went back and looked—yep, I reg­is­tered there and gave them my address and two days lat­er I got the first spam from those com­pa­nies. I did­n’t use a sneake­mail address because I was too lazy and EMode seemed rea­son­ably legit, TrustE cer­ti­fied, and so on. Now I know better.
