 Most is caught by the spam filter but there is a lot of it.

I've noticed that more SPAM gets through to my email since I joined the Apache OpenOffice
project. Oh well for me it is maybe 7 a week instead of 1 or 2.

Sorry for the trouble, I don't know what to do about spammers who mine publicly available
emails. We are not going to be able to hide our identities behind registrations.

Back in the 1990s my email was part of out domain registration. By the mid-2000s I was receiving
200 spams a day both home and in the office. We found an external filtering service and that
60 minute daily time sync went away. I do feel your pain.
