For those with Gmail accounts...

What is going on with google? I have a gmail account, and man. Spam galore all of a sudden. I keep reporting the spam, but the stuff keeps coming. Granted they have caught most of it, but lately I have been getting 6 messages a day in spam in my inbox.

Starting to tick me off.

I don't have a g-mail account, but my spam rate has also climbed dramatically in the past couple weeks.

I have a g-mail just to have it... don't really use it... keeping it in reserve.

I check it every two weeks or so... and probably have about 3 or 4 junks in there.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones. ZERO spam in my inbox. But the Spam folder seems to be getting about 50 a day now.

Carter, probably because you have your painthappy gmail address listed publicly all over the place!

I have 3 gmail accounts, one is my main one that I e-mail everything important in. The second is just registering on sites I do not trust or don't use very offten. Then the 3rd is just random stuff that ask for e-mails.

Even the 3rd one doesn't get any junk e-mails, I may get the odd one or 2.
