What I find interesting is that I didn't get all that much spam from my
small collection of domains. Of course, the e-mail addresses associated
with those domains is "admin at satchell.net" (and "abuse at satchell.net").
Indeed, abuse is completely ignored by spammers, while admin gets a
couple of pieces of Far East spam a week. That's right, a week.
I bought privacy service now, as well as renewal protection. I've lost
three domains, and don't want to lose any more.
