Oh I can agree so much with Some idiot’s been using my e-mail address for years - ars technica.

Almost all of my previous rants about the subject of other people thinking they have my address or think it's a nice spamdump were about the xs4all address I have since about a week before the official start of xs4all in 1993. But I also get the same with the gmail address I have. The usual is about someone who thinks it's the address of a relative. For example when I browse it now: about someone in the hospital, a mother explaining how to fix things with bank access from abroad (response to a scam attempt?), a forwarded mobile phone cancellation, information for a child going to study in Toronto. Or a discussion about company plans to professionalise their e-mail campaigns spam. I have also received several e-mails for a vicar.
