Not necessarily Glen. If you do a Google for your email address you
will see it is there for all to see.
Spammers get their emails from many different sources. One is thru
tralling the net for any @ email address, yours is clearly visible.
Another is to run a small PC programme to generate a multitude of

glenwilson is not exactly hard to come up with.
