The way I understand it people tend to use spiders to gather e-mail addresses from websites and that maybe how they got yours. I have seen some scripts that are supposed to fight the spiders by sending them a set number 50 or so fake e-mail addresses that you set up. The spider will get these and result in a bunch of returned e-mails and maybe their isp will cut them off. I don't know if it will stop you from getting any but it might be worth a shot. I haven't used it yet but you can get one at http://www.shavenferret.com/scripts/spam/ or search cgi-resources.com.

>Hey everyone,
>Since i have launched a new website i have been getting loads of spam.Heres the deal,there are 4 people who send me about 5 spam emails with the same opportunity(looks like a "get rich quick scam")everyday.They are using their home email adresses like @aol.com,@mindspring.com ect..I have told them all to remove me from their list a few times,but they still send me emails.Are there any no spam groups out there that can take care of this for me?Ive got spam in the past but usually when i ask to be removed they do it,so i dont have any experience in sending a complaint to their isp's.How do i do that?Their emails are also huge and at one point filled up my email box and made my emails bounce.Give me some info please :)
