Strange thing happened...

I have a personal email address, which I have never used and never sent or recieved any email at until I joined AR15.com. Since giving this email address out to (ONLY) AR15.com this email address is swamped with SPAM! In fact, everyday it gets worse and worse... I stared using the interent well over 14 years ago with a 9600baud modem and fully understand exactly how the internet, email and all other aspects of computing, virus's and SPAM work. Which leaves me with the only possible conclusion is that AR15.com has either shared my personal EMAIL/info or is accidentally not all that secure with my privacy.

I'd like to personally thank AR15.com for this and causing me to cancel my private email address, although I sometimes enjoy reading the post here, I am dissapointed with what has happened and there is NO possible other way for the spam in my email I am getting.

since when did typing in color become popular?

It makes it hard to read.

The exact same thing happened to me.

I never had a spam problem until I registered at ar15.com

My main reason for bring this to everyones attention was not to slam AR15.com they appear to have done nothing wrong, and that I was sure I wasn't alone with this problem. Some peoples mail is already so overly full of spam that they may not have noticed the differance after registering here.

I realize it is most likly a basic script-kiddy harvester program doing the dirty work and I am not accusing AR15.com of directly giving out an info. The way most "harvester programs" work any average webhost would or could notice a harvester script at work in the logs, much like a web-riper accept not as much bandwidth being hogged by a single IP and harvesters usually only go for credit card numbers, email or IP addy's. What surprised me is that my AR15.com email address was changed repeatedly after registering (but will not take...) and it is set to not show my email address or allow others to email me...

Pony up some $$ and become a MEMBER - then you can use an xxxx@ar15.com address.

Problem solved, I just canceled that email address with my IP. So at this point there is no working email address for AR15.com
