    That is interesting because my e-mail address was just stolen one week ago
    and used as a "spoof" address for a number of mass e-mails. Perhaps just
    coincidence. Usually such incidents just blow over and you don't even have
    to change your address unless you find you have been blocked as a spammer by
    many sites.
