Since the Boneyard moved to its new site the email address that I used to sign up on it has become inundated with spam; up to 16 offers for Nigerian cash a week plus a load of smelly phish. This is my first problem with spam since I installed this OS and connected to DSL. None of our other email addresses have a problem. Has anyone else noticed an increase in spam since switching to the new Boneyard site?

i have a very strong spam blocker - in fact, i can only receive emails from people who are approved. cuts way down on the junk.

Hmm... I thought you were going to see Spamalot at the Oakdale.

Nope, no spam here. Spam, Spam, wonderful Spam!!

Same amount of junk mail I got before I joined this board (and fortunately my Mail application puts most of it directly in the trash). Nothing changed when I joined. So, Grizz, your situation sounds like a coincidence.

I have had a recent increase, too, but it is hard to attribute it to this site. My spam catcher grabs it and holds it for review.

Maybe it's an attempt to get the bears off their diet of salmon and on to consuming spam?

I had had a similar thought.

How did you two get to be popular posters? You're not too popular with me right about now. Having taken the taste test, I much prefer spam over phish.

Hmmmm... maybe. I have rather suddenly been getting bits and pieces of spam lately, but I hadn't traced it to a source. It might have started after I signed up here.
