RE: Signing up for spam?

        As I'm sure has been suggested already, just get your email
address out there.  Create accounts at blogger, livejournal, geocities
etc and put up basic homepages with just your email address a few times.
Pick random newsgroups, public forums etc and in your post put your
email addy (in your signature if you want to be subtle).  There's bots
that trawl for email addys in all these places.  Heck, even sign up to
hotmail and send that account a few emails will help, I'm sure.

Hi there,

I am interesting in getting as much spam as possible for an experiment

to eyemyspam () gmail com , the address that I used to sign up here.  So 
far I've put a mailto on a high traffic site, and am experimenting 
with newsletters, domain information, usenet, opt-out forms, and more.
 Are there any automated tools to sign someone up for a high volume of

spam?  Google didn't help much here.
