    well unsubscribing is your first mistake, this just verifies the address as
    a valid one, resulting in even more, also having your real email address
    posting on here is a sure way of getting more crap, you need to munge your
    addy, I am sure someone will provide a link as to how to do this

    Here are a few general references on spam.

    Most users need to munge (spam proof) their email address:

    Thats the worst thing you can do, ie unsubscribe to spam. What that
    tells the spammer is you are one of their best customers in that you
    actually read the spam. Your email address then becomes one of the most
    valuable and sellable on the Internet for the spamming community.
