I've never received SPAM "as a result of joining" this site, but if I was foolish enough to use this Forum as a posting place for Quinn's addy, i.e. the literal "Quinn@GeoCaching.com" or the mailto: URL Quinn@GeoCaching.com, then nefarious 'bots/spiders crawling the WWW can collect the addy and abuse it. Abuse not only hassles the recipient, but overloads the receiving domain's mailserver ;^)
You'll possibly notice that the Contact Us feature of this site smartly uses a form and no links.
What's the difference between ignorance & apathy?
I don't know, nor do I care!
