Surely, this is the most likely explanation.

Exposure of your email is never good, plus you and other malicious stuff most likely signed up for stuff.. Companies selling emails oh yay!

I cannot understand why anyone would do this to you. You are a really nice person. This is one reason, I do not make my email public on any forum.

Recently helped someone with their incredimail email today. So I wanted to log into their web based email and see how many emails were waiting for them on the server (It was redownloading the same email over and over). I asked what their password was. They said "Internet". I told them that was a terrible password.

I recently helped a business reconfigure their ISP email on their new machines. Their email password..... "Password". I told them... uh call your ISP and get that changed.

Odd I got another today, so I guess it is some virus, hi-jack thing.

Couldn't find the member's name in the member list.

Wondered if he was banned.

Apparently removed altogether.
