It seems as if some people who disagree with what I wrote kindly subscribed me to many different sites; gay porn, free cards, personal horoscope, $10,000 lottery, and many more. That is so caring.

Unfortunately, I only signed up for that account not to give out my real email address.

But you guys are so sweet !

How do you know that someone here subscribed you? I'm just curious, not meaning to argue with you or anything (I'm just an old mom anyway. What do I know?!). I get tons of porn ads. Our addresses are easily accessed here (and no, I don't use my "normal" address either). It's pretty easy for a SPAM company to search these sites and get any addresses they want, as they aren't hidden from lurkers.

I signed up for that account solely to hide my real email address. I don't use that email anywhere else.

I do have Kazaa but my 5 other hotmail accounts don't get any spam. That's how.

Your email address was probably picked up by one of those scavenger programs that automatically searches the internet for email addresses. I get tons of spam too, but it isn't because anyone signed me up for it.
