I hated to do that.
But for some reason or another, thanks to spam scrapers and the like, I was getting so much spam on that e-mail address that I couldn’t sort out the real messages from the Spam.
Even thanks to Google’s spam filtering and to Apple Mail’s junk mail filtering I was still seeing 200 messages a day on that address–all spam.
I’m sure there was some real messages in there somewhere, but sorry; I didn’t get them. If you sent me a real message, it was probably buried under offers for Viagra, free money, and offers in Spanish and Russian and Chinese I couldn’t read.
