sketchy websites and spam

I'm sure most people are fairly religious about not giving out their primary email address when signing up for web services. My basic approach is to utilize the email generator in Bloglines. You can create an unlimited number of email addresses. I use one per site when I sign up for something. I've done this for about a year now. I have about 100 email addresses. I assumed by now I would be able to report back with a huge list of websites that compromised my email address. Sold it off to some spammer or a commercial partner. Guess how many email accounts have received spam?


Not a single spam email. Zippo. Color me surprised.
