      I think you must have put your name there to start with, but if you want it removed, email to neil40 @ btinternet.com should do it

      It seems a rather stupid thing for a site administrator to do to show email addresses in clear like that. It is just asking for spam to fill your inbox. You should advise him that what he is doing is not very sensible. If he wants to list email he should do it in a graphic, which will not be picked up by spam botts.

      If you are already getting spam, removing it is probably too late, all you can do is 'blackhole' the address.

      i didnt!
      its someone who used to have the e-mail or somebody has typed it wrong, but the moral or this story is - get e-mail address removed from sites or get shouted at

      Re: one of my e-mail addresses is listed on the net

      I have this problem, one of my email address ended up on a list,( i found out by googling my addy) and now my email has been abandoned last time i looked it was sitting at 17,000+ spam emails. Once you email is out i would leave it.
