Fun with spam

Since moving festing.org to my sexy new virtual server a few weeks ago, I've been debugging a few e-mail issues when I discovered that my server was getting a rather large amount of e-mail being delivered to people who no longer have e-mail addresses at festing.org. Because I know everyone's curious, here's the score from 14 January through a few minutes ago:

bitscape 1600
nemo 90
linknoid 34
indolence 6
playground 6
r 6
buckskin 5
sickbedsplayground 5
accounting 4
accounts 4
admin 4
administrator 4
advertising 4
billing 4
contact 4
help 4
home 4
info 4
majordomo 4
sales 4
support 4
ffbnemo 3

(I can't guarantee that none of that mail was signal, but it seems rather unlikely.)

I'm not sure what Bitscape did to attract quite so much spam. Nor am I entirely sure I want to know. :) For the record, during the same period, I received 407 e-mails, 334 of which were caught by my spam filter.

(If anyone wants an e-mail address @festing.org, or is wondering what's been happening to their e-mail for the past several weeks (if you were still using the forward I think may have still been in place), let me know and all this spam can be yours! Forwarded to you at absolutely no cost.)

You always learn more from someone whom you disagree with.
