I do not reply to any contribution in particular just my 2 cents.
I am on the list with very seldom contriutions and I do not receive any
spam through this list (yet).
I installed webmail accounts for friends of mine on domains like Yahoo
and even though they NEVER left their e-mail on a webpage or a list
they receive spam!
My personal conclusions on that observation are:
o harvesters are only one problem (I can not give a ranking)
o harvesters are not as smart as one may think
o either these e-mail have been found on infected PCs and
collected (a lot of PCs of friends that I had to look at have
some strange files that virusscanners complain of)
o or the algorithm of combining names and domains to
e-mail adresses are smart enough and even less time consuming
o or both
I think the rockbox core team is doing realy enough to protect our
e-mail addresses. Have a look at other websites!
