SPAM

OK, so I set up a new email address to accept emails from this blogging thing. The only place it exists is in the setup with blogger/blogspot/haloscan, and in any comments made on blogs in the last week or so.

I'm already getting spam on it.

I recently theorized that some spamers have begun dictionary spamming, randomly generating names and numbers and just blasting out. I've looked at the source of some spams, and sometimes I've seen them where sent to, say, 6 recipients. There's me, and five other similar addresses. For example:

johndoe@
johndof@
johndog@
johndoh@
johndoi@
johndoj@

But then I wonder too is it's coming from bots parsing the comments, or even blogger/blogspot/haloscan selling them.

Thoughts??
