Has anyone with a paid Live Journal account noticed an increase in SPAM the past 2-3 months? If you are using your LJ email address, the one that ends in @livejournal.com have you noticed heaps of SPAM coming to this addy?

My SPAM has doubled over the last few months and checking my logs I can attribute 85% - 90% of this to my Live Journal supplied email address.

On this basis I have decided to stop using the LJ supplied email addy you get with a paid account. This means I won't be getting any email traffic delivered to my email client, a saving of over 500 emails a month that end up in my SPAM directory that I check for stray expected emails. As the SPAM have attachments I'm going to save time, download capacity and the risk of infection.

If this inconveniences anyone, I apologise. Having spent two weeks overseas I wasted the better part of this afternoon sifting through garbage emails. If you can attend to these things on an hourly/am/pm/daily basis it might be tolerable. For me as commitments don't allow for checking emails every hour, sorting through SPAM on the spot, I have better things to do with my time.
