    You need to learn how to "munge" your email address against the spam bots
    that search the public forums for valid email addresses. E-mail isn't
    public, therefore you don't need to munge it.

    Month Report"

    If you still want to munge your email address, Use ""
    Send an e-mail to to see why.
    (Hint: They send out a small autoresponse) http://privacy.net/email/

    Another email address you can use is [whatever you want]@example.com
    (or ".net" or ".org") because those three names are reserved and any
    responses will end up going nowhere.

    If I tell everyone to delete it from their systems, will you show me how much
    you appreciate it?
