What kind of websites are you on when this happens? I don't have that problem.

It is because most sites sell their email lists, regardless whether they say they don't, and there is a lot a spam artists out there. I found out recently to not click the unsubscribe button. This will either capture your email address and put it on a list to sell or they will use it to spam you with another random email address. The best thing to do is delete the email and report it as spam to your amail provider.

I have been getting lots of pornographic emails lately masked as emails from my friends. I have reported them, but apparently they don't give up easily. I have NEVER visited adult sites, nor will I, so I have no clue how they got my info, but it is offensive. Hopefully one day there will be legislation passed that allows us to sign up on lists so the pervs can't send that nonsense to us anymore (like the national do not call list.) In the meantime all we can do is ignore the filth and wait it out.

If you stay away from certain types of sites you don't have to worry about all the garbage on the internet. I usually only go to sites that are about my hobbies and stuff I like. I don't use any social networking sites and stuff.

thats why i have a separate email account one i use for my sites like this one one for personal use
if you have one for personal use to message friends and family you will see little or no junk mail
maybe the occasional email from provider but nothing like what your saying.

Yeah, that's what I do, too.

I've had the same email address for almost 10 years now, so I get a ton of that spam everyday.  I think it's inevitable the longer you use the address sadly.

They're just fake advertisments.

I wouldn't worry about them too much. If it comes up too much someone might have been looking at *bleep* on your computer lol.
