Only 5? I'd be asking for a refund (sorry, I forgot, this site is free)

Only joking ;)

Seriously, I very much doubt it's because of this site. When I turned 50, I got all manner of demographic related crap coming through. Anywhere you've entered your details online could be the source of increased traffic. Just your age, & the fact you happen to be male, can trigger a whole tidal wave of stuff.

Members' email addresses aren't visible on this forum, so it would be hard for a spambot to pick it up and use it. I'm guessing it's a coincidence.

Never had a problem with spam connected to this forum, but I do get loads of it in general. Luckily, the GMail spam filter is exceptionally good :-)

I'd really wager it's somewhere else. Drummerworld doesn't seem like the type of site that would sell your info to advertisers, especially not spammy ones like that.

+1 I was gonna say that I never saw additional spam since signing up here, but maybe I did and gmail blocked it?

I use hotmail and I've never received spam... So it's not just Gmail, it's probably just a coincidence

I seriously have to wonder if it is? Considering how much spam accounts sign up here, I'm left wondering if these scumbags find a way to gather info when people register.

I only used this current e-mail address ONE time and that was to sign up here at DW and have just received a spam e-mail. There is no other possible way for this e-mail to of been known about until I used it to sign up here.

This really sucks tbh.

It may happen. There are automated bots out there that are designed to skim email addresses from forums like these.

The easiest solution is to simply make the email invisible. That's quite trivial to do. You can put the address on a 'vCard' that has to be downloaded but that isn't directly viewable from the site and would require another step in the bot's procedure.

I've never had a problem with spam on here. With my current email address or the addresses I've used since 2004.

As a Mod I can tell you that we would never spam you with an Asian womens web site. We only use Scandinavia. Joking of course

lol Grunter, Asian, Scandinavian, as long as it's women I don't mind. :D

I guess there really wasn't a reason to rant about it as I'm not sure if Bernhard or any other admin can do something about it and/or to prevent it in the future for others but it was an invasive feeling to get that e-mail when all I've used the account for was to sign up here. Guess I was just one of the unlucky ones. You know what they say, lucky in life, unlucky with e-mail spam lol. :)
