I don't understand what you are asking.
Are you saying that none of the addresses you listed were slogged?
Are you saying that *NO* email addresses are slogged anymore?
Are you saying that this list of email addresses did not come from one source?

Some of these emails could have been slogged, some guessed (i.e. 
"forrestgump at hotmail(1-30).com, forrestgump at yahoo(1-30).com) some gotten from 
viruses that steal address books? Some bought on a CD with a MILLION email 
addys. There are several ways to acquire addresses. Oh, I forgot the now 
popular "opt-in."

As is obvious, an email handling program sorted these addresses by domain and 
then by alphabetical order. Decent slogging programs have that feature - and 
enable the user to NOT send email to specific domains (and sometimes even 
regions -like Wash. State).

I spot checked the list and found some via the major search engines:
The fact that I could do this manually supports the argument that at least 
some slogging goes on. 
In case you misunderstood, I am *not* saying ALL email addresses are slogged.
