      Mine comes in all the time with my full name in the title line.

      I get about 50 a day. Had the same hotmail email address for 12 years now.

      I was getting about 150 a day when I sold on ebay heavy.

      Sites that grab your ip address, how do you know they stop there? Otherwise, they could not grab your email address too.

      Am running Mozilla, less problems. Mepis Linux, even less problems.

      Excuse me, I farted.

          Likely just a coincidence. Glen isn't an uncommon name.

                I've started getting spammed at work with my full name in the subject line and offers for numerous male enhancement products. I think I'm starting to get a complex and wonder who's been looking. :-0
