Dude, that's great advice to everyone, in all forums.. Spam mail sucks!!
DUUDE ! no ! never ever ever just post your email account on a forum like that... especially your gmail account.
spammers use things called spipers or bots or whatever that scan websites. ESPECIALLY open forums like this looking for emails to spam and sell to other spammers.
the best way to protect yourself from spam, is only giveout your email to firends, or websites that do not display your email on web pages.
its reeealy bad with gmail, as you cant just get anouther acount when this one is spammed up.
if i were you, i would remove my email from every public webpage you have posted it.
--I wanna sign up for Gmail and get away from my current acount at Yahoo. The descriptions I hear about Gmail sound really nice.
