    Question Has moon sold our email addresses?

    Has moon sold our email addresses to a spam company? I've suddenly started getting tons of emails about car audio, mp3 stuff, and a few about mp3car stuff. This is the ONLY place I have ever signed up about anything like that, so it is the only place they could have gotten my address.

    I've gotten 3 or 4.
    I need to put in better email filtering.
    Right now I can filter out about 3/4's of the crap, but thats it.

    BUT!! now that I look over it I would say, that is wasn't someone on this board, because I got the same email (the one talked about above) to both my emails, one that is not listed on MP3car..??
