The above IS my real email address, BTW. I am not Levi.
The issue that Levi refers to is the situation where automated web “crawlers” will search the web for email addresses and build a spammable database for microfractions of a penny on the dollar compared to what you can pay for a valid, commercial email list. These do exist and are quite numerous, and cheap to build. I myself could probably write a really good one in under a day – not that I would. I sincerely doubt that Levi had intended any slight upon any member of this board. It is the general public he is concerned with.
I myself use my plegriggles email address pretty much only for creonline posts. I nonetheless get spam on this address. I understand and sympathize with Levi.
Please, cut him some slack. He knows what he is doing!
