Hi Mak,

Hmm... I don't believe this forum software displays email addresses, so no-one's scraping it from here.

We certainly don't publish anyone's email address. In fact, I don't know ANYONE'S email address from these forums. I'm pretty sure that the spam is unrelated to these forums.

All the best -

Ben

I have registrations on there two services:
  • http://bugs.formtools.org/
  • http://forums.formtools.org/

Each of them has its OWN UNIQUE email address of mine.
UNIQUE - means it is not used ANY WHERE else as just on those sites.

For every of those two email addresses I got spam emails.

I just wrote this post to warn you that some "problem" can be here with software or human.

Hmmm... I wonder. The bug tracker is pretty mediocre, to be honest, so my hunch is that if there's a security hole it would be there.

Sorry about this. I know what an unbelievable nuisance spam can be (I was up to 10,000 a month a few months back). Thank heavens for Gmail's decent spam filter. Smile
