    Derek,

    Since I only ever write to the DB2 newsgroup, and my mailbox has been full
    of false MS letters over the last few days, I think you can safely assume
    that this is one of the lists they are harvesting user IDs from.

    But probably they're harvesting loads of groups.

    They are harvesting from all groups (in addition to other sources), probably
    on the google.com newsgroup archives.

    It would be good if google groups didn't require an actual email
    address to post via the web. To get around the spam problem I use a
    freebie mail address that I never check ;o)
