I'm getting spam email on my flyertalk email addr...

Hi all...

So the email address I originally signed up for Flyer Talk with (I have since changed it) is received email from an unrelated message board.

I never signed up for this other message board (it's a message board about quilting - weird, huh?), and never made my email address here visible to anyone, so far as I know.

Can the moderators tell me how my email address may have gotten out of their hands?

- Tim

I, too just got email from a spammer at an email address that has only ever been used on Flyertalk. Has there been some security issue at Flyertalk, or has the email list been sold?

I too received spam from FlyerTalk concerning some quilting nonsense.

I'd beg to differ with IBAngel, my e-mail address has been compromised, by Flyertalk.
